Greetings OpenStack community,

This week's meeting[0] was relatively light, with some discussion about 
the recently released Ethercalc[4], and the first draft of the API 
compatiblity guideline[5] (many thanks to Chris Dent). The compatibility 
guideline lays out some concrete standards by which projects can 
definitely determine if they are following the API guidelines in 
general, and how closely their efforts track. This work is part of the 
foundation for creating an API compatiblity tag which projects can apply 

One reminder: Projects should make sure that their liaison information 
is up to date at 
http://specs.openstack.org/openstack/api-wg/liaisons.html . If not, 
please provide a patch to doc/source/liaisons.json to update it.

One guideline was frozen this week.

# Newly Published Guidelines

* Add guideline for invalid query parameters
* Add guidelines on usage of state vs. status

# API Guidelines Proposed for Freeze

# Highlighting your API impacting issues

If you seek further review and insight from the API WG, please address 
your concerns in an email to the OpenStack developer mailing list[1] 
with the tag "[api]" in the subject. In your email, you should include 
any relevant reviews, links, and comments to help guide the discussion 
of the specific challenge you are facing.
