Greetings OpenStack community,

A very quiet meeting today [7], which you would expect with the absence of cdent and elmiko. The main discussion was about the guideline on exposing microversions in SDKs [8] by dtantsur. The focus of the discussion was about how to handle the distinction between what he calls a "low-level SDK" (such as novaclient, ironicclient, etc.), and a "high-level SDK" (such as Shade, jclouds, or OpenStack.NET). We agreed to continue the discussion next week when we can have additional points of view available to come up with more clarity.

Oh, and we merged the improvement to the guideline on pagination. Thanks, mordred!

As always if you're interested in helping out, in addition to coming to the meetings, there's also:

* The list of bugs [5] indicates several missing or incomplete guidelines.
* The existing guidelines [2] always need refreshing to account for changes over time. If you find something that's not quite right, submit a patch [6] to fix it.
* Have you done something for which you think guidance would have made things easier but couldn't find any? Submit a patch and help others [6].

# Newly Published Guidelines

# Highlighting your API impacting issues

If you seek further review and insight from the API SIG about APIs that you are developing or changing, please address your concerns in an email to the OpenStack developer mailing list[1] with the tag "[api]" in the subject.
