Hello, I'm looking forward to seeing many of you next week in Atlanta.
We're going to be working on Arch-WG topics all day Tuesday, and if
you'd like to join us for that in general, please add your topic here:


I specifically want to call out an important discussion session for one
of our active work streams, nova-compute-api:


At this point, we've gotten a ton of information from various
contributors, and I want to thank everyone who commented on 411527 with
helpful data. I'll be compiling the data we have into some bullet points
which I intend to share on the projector in an etherpad[1], and then invite
the room to ensure the accuracy and completeness of what we have there.
I grabbed two 30-minute slots in Macon for Tuesday to do this, and I'd
like to invite anyone who has thoughts on how nova-compute interacts to
join us and participate. If you will not be able to attend, please read
the documents and comments in the reviews above and fill in any information
you think is missing on the etherpad[1] so we can address it there.

Once we have this data, I'll likely spend a small amount of time grabbing people from
each relevant project team on Wednesday/Thursday to get a deeper understanding of some
of the pieces that we talk about on Tuesday.

>From that, as a group we'll produce a detailed analysis of all the ways
nova-compute is interacted with today, and ongoing efforts to change
them. If you are interested in this please do raise your hand and come
to our meetings[2] as my time to work on this is limited, and the idea
for the Arch-WG isn't "Arch-WG solves OpenStack" but "Arch-WG provides
a structure by which teams can raise understanding of architecture."

Once we've produced that analysis, which we intend to land as a document
in our arch-wg repository, we'll produce a set of specs in the appropriate
places (likely openstack-specs) for how to get it to where we want to

Also, speaking of the meeting -- Since we'll all be meeting on Tuesday
at the PTG, the meeting for next week is cancelled.
