We discussed couple of notification related items last week on the PTG 

Searchlight related notification enhancements
We decided that the Extending versioned notifications for searchlight 
integration blueprint [2] has high priority for Pike to help the 
Nova-Searchlight integration which is needed for the cellv2 work. See 
more details in the Matt's recap on the cells discussion [3].
Code is already in good shape for everything except the BDM part of the 

Short circuit notification generation
We agreed that we want to avoid generating the notification payloads if 
nova or oslo messaging is configured so that the actual notification 
will not be sent. There will be no new configuration parameter to turn 
off the notification payload generation and the existing 
notification_format and oslo_messaging_notifications.driver 
configuration parameters will be used in the implementation. A WIP 
patch is already proposed [4].

Versioned notification transformation work
We agreed that it would help cores to review the patches if the subteam 
could keep a short list (about 5 items)  of patches that the cores 
should look at. So I will make sure that such a list will be up to date 
on the priority etherpad [5].
Also we agreed that I will send out a short weekly mail about the items 
in focus, similarly to the placement status mails. Also we hope that 
the Nova-Searchlight integration will provide some focus and motivation 
by showing the impact of this work.
