The Oslo Incubator
The Oslo program produces a set of python libraries containing infrastructure code shared by OpenStack projects. The APIs provided by these libraries should be high quality, stable, consistent and generally useful.
The process of developing a new Oslo API usually begins by taking code which is common to some OpenStack projects and moving it into this repository. Incubation shouldn't be seen as a long term option for any API - it is merely a stepping stone to inclusion into a published Oslo library.
