Greetings OpenStack community,
This week the working group has been discussing an interesting topic
raised by Michael Krotscheck on the devel mailing list. This
discussion is mainly about how we can create a more consistent API
version discovery mechanism across the OpenStack projects, and whether
the discovery endpoints should be restricted by authenticated access. As
with any cross-project effort, this topic has many nuances and we are
hopeful that there will be a path forward to making version discovery a
more smooth process in the future.
The meeting logs are in the usual place . If you find an issue with
an existing guideline  or think of one that needs to exist, make a

# API Impact reviews currently open
Reviews marked as APIImpact  are meant to help inform the working
group about changes which would benefit from wider inspection by group
members and liaisons. While the working group will attempt to address
these reviews whenever possible, it is highly recommended that
interested parties attend the API WG meetings  to promote
communication surrounding their reviews.
