Re: [RFC] OpenStack API


Whoops ... I've updated the BP and moved all ozone etherpads to the openstack etherpad.

I've also updated the BP to point to the branch I'm working in.

You can reach me 9-5 EST-ish on openstack IRC as 'sandywalsh'

Hope it helps!

Excellent and thanks.
a)    I will change mine to informational & merge with the openstack-api-parity blueprint
b)    I did see the blue print but couldn't get to the details as it points to the Ozone Wiki, which I don't have access to. Can you help me to get to the details ?
c)    Would be happy to work with Sandy - always better to enhance what is already there. Moreover, RackSpace Cloud API is a good start.
d)    This topic might be a good discussion point at the next design summit, here in Santa Clara.

Hey ksankar,

We already have a blueprint to cover the Openstack API efforts for teh
Bexar release at:


See previous threads in that list: The Openstack API (1.0) support
already exists in the code, it is currently the Rackspace Cloud API.
Version 1.1 of that API (in Cactus) should have an Openstack namespace
and extensibility.

As part of the above spec, Sandy Walsh has a new python-cloudservers
library (and accompanying cloudservers CLI tool) that, with adequate
rebranding, should just be what you're looking for.
