I've shared a document with you called "OCCI-WG Conference Call  
http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=ddqm27m2_291zwgn28ht&invite=501063204 It's  
not an attachment -- it's stored online at Google Docs. To open this  
document, just click the link above. --- Thanks to everyone who as able to  
make it for a good (1hr) call today. I have prepared some notes covering  
most of the topics that were raised which are temporarily in a Google doc  
so you can add your own notes before we migrate to the wiki. Generally we  
are very happy with the progress made over a very short period and the most  
important result of the discussion was a timeline leading up to OGF26 at  
the end of next month (by which time we will have an implementable draft).  
OCCI-WG Conference Call 2009-04-22

Note: Future conference calls to be held at 08h00 PDT / 17h00 CEST (see  
meeting planner)

OGF 26
First draft of the API to be delivered along with a presentation (ideally  
directly from the wiki so as to familiarise potential participants)
Two slots requested - one for presentation (marketing moreso than technical  
- with slides) and one for discussion/feedback
OGF 27
Final specification in "static" format
Ongoing enhancement by way of registries (following concsensus on the  
mailing list) and extension development (e.g. firewall management)
Done and approved.
Use Cases
Please take a look at the use case pages and update it if necessary
IL to mail requesting more use cases - better to get input now than later
Wiki, web site, logo, etc. done by committee offline
API Design
Good progress made already - this will be the basis of the implementable  
We have the essential states that we need now
Add states as we need them via registries
This approach should give sufficient flexibility
Keep state diagram very simple (with comment about error state being  
universally applicable)
Compute / Network / Storage (with subtypes for e.g. physical/virtual  
machines and networks, drives and snapshots, etc.)
IP addresses, VLANs, etc. (IDs inside networks is ok for EH - details need  
to be codified and ratified)
High level agreement / consensus on most issues - little contention
No action required beyond developing information in the wiki
Taxonomy/Ontology to be defined by end April (already mostly complete)
Formats to be defined by mid May (work and discussion underway)
Feedback to be solicited internally and externally in the latter two weeks  
of may respectively
TM to advise on documentation requirements for OGF
SJ has DocBook templates underway
Other issues potentially in scope?
Network management API (basic)
Storage management API (basic)
Security functionality (basic)
April - Nouns / Verbs / Attributes (Wiki)
May 15 - Formats / Wire Protocol (Wiki)
May 22 - Internal Feedback
May 29 - External Feedback
June - Documentation
