[Openstack] Management API

There's been some discussion of an admin/management API and what functions would be provided there. I've been tasked with handling the technical coordination of implementing Nova at Rackspace, and have thus been identifying gaps between functionality that our current system provides and those provided by Nova.

I've created a preliminary proposal at http://wiki.openstack.org/NovaAdminAPI – this is still somewhat early, but I want to make sure that the OpenStack community has the opportunity to provide feedback.

My expectations are that management API features will fall into two categories: (1) those that would be generally useful to anyone who deploys OpenStack Compute, and (2) those that are specific to Rackspace's needs (or perhaps another service provider). One of the goals of this discussion is to identify those different features. While all these features will initially be implemented using the API 1.1 extensions mechanism, those that fall into category (1) may be migrated to Nova-core in the near future, while (2) will remain Rackspace-specific extensions.
