Here is the status update / focus setting mail about notification work 
for week 24.

[Medium] https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1657428 The instance 
notifications are sent with inconsistent timestamp format. One of the 
prerequisite patches needs some discussion 

[New] https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1684860 Versioned server 
notifications don't include updated_at
We missed the update_at field during the transformation of the instance 
notifications. This is pretty easy to fix so I marked as low-hanging.

[Low] https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1696152 nova notifications 
use nova-api as binary name instead of nova-osapi_compute
Agreed not to change the binary name in the notifications. Instead we 
make an enum for that name to show that the name is intentional.

Versioned notification transformation
Patches are still need core attention:

Searchlight integration
bp additional-notification-fields-for-searchlight
The first two patches in the series needs core attention the rest need 
some care by the author:

Small improvements
* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/428199/ Improve assertJsonEqual
error reporting
* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/450787/ remove ugly local import

* https://review.openstack.org/#/q/topic:refactor-notification-samples
Factor out duplicated notification sample data
This is a start of a longer patch series to deduplicate notification
sample data. The third patch already shows how much sample data can be
deleted from nova tree. We added a minimal hand rolled json ref
implementation to notification sample test as the existing python json
ref implementations are not well maintained.

Weekly meeting
The notification subteam holds it's weekly meeting on Tuesday 17:00 UTC
on openstack-meeting-4. The next meeting will be held on 13th of June.
