> Hey Everyone,
> So along the lines of an earlier thread that went out regarding testing of
> deprecated API's and Tempest etc [1].
> Now that micro-versions are *the API versioning scheme to rule them all*
> one question I've not been able to find an answer for is what we're going
> to promise here for support and testing.  My understanding thus far is that
> the "community" approach here is "nothing is ever deprecated, and
> everything is supported forever".
> That's sort of a tall order IMO, but ok.  I've already had some questions
> from folks about implementing an explicit Tempest test for every
> micro-versioned implementation of an API call also.  My response has been
> "nahh, just always test latest available".  This kinda means that we're not
> testing/supporting the previous versions as promised though.
> Anyway; I'm certain that between Nova and the API-WG this has come up and
> is probably addressed, just wondering if somebody can point me to some
> documentation or policies in this respect.
> Thanks,
> John
