[Openstack] API question: what exactly is "status" ?

In the following call

   GET /v2/{tenant-id}/servers/{server-id}

the HTTP response returns four statuses

    server: {
       status: "ACTIVE" ,
       OS-EXT-STS.power_state: 1,
       OS-EXT-STS:task_state: null,
       OS-EXT-STS:vm_state: "active",

Three of the above power_state, task_state and vm_state are documented here
( https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/VMState ). Even though this is more
slanted towards implementation rather than an API usage developer, it does
help to some extent in understanding what these statuses are.

But what is status ? So far I have noticed it is the same as vm_state
except in upper case.
