The 3 of us were the original core members (I'm not sure if [4] is capable of displaying history). Then we started making commits to the repo [5]. I'll leave it as an exercise to the reader to determine who got involved, when they got involved, and in what capacity.

Sorry if my memory is shaky - mea culpa. I thought Everett and I had had discussions about starting something like this in early 2014 back when we were working at Rackspace and both fighting the inconsistency of the OpenStack APIs. But true, nothing concrete was done at that time.

What I *do* remember quite clearly when I returned to the world of OpenStack in late 2014 was that Everett was very active in making the group a relevant force for improvement, and has been ever since then. That is the main point I want to emphasize.
