Greetings OpenStack community,

This week we talked quite a bit about what the API-WG will be trying to do next week at the PTG. We'll be sharing time and space with the Architecture working group, with rooms on both Monday and Tuesday of the cross-project period of the week. Topics are being planned on an etherpad [0], with some discussion there on which day will have which topics. This is going to be difficult to manage the day of as there will be lots of overlap of topics for interested parties. We'll try to provide information in the room as things happen and also make regular announcements to the #openstack-ptg IRC channel.

The other primary topic was the ongoing discussion surrounding the API compatibility and stability guideline [4]. We're nearly there, with mostly details to work out. There was agreement that the guideline, with its assertion that versioning is a requirement for the new stability tag will set a high bar for projects and this is OK.

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.

Because of the PTG there will be no API-WG meeting next week. We'll resume on March 2nd.
