Synnefo-wide
66
------------
67
* Standardize URLs for Synnefo Components:
68

    
69
  * impose structure and naming conventions to all URL related settings. Make
70
    each component deployable under a user-configurable <COMPONENT>_BASE_URL.

    Each API (compute, image, etc.) is deployable under a
72
    developer-configurable prefix beneath BASE_URL.
73

    
74
* Branding customization support across synnefo frontend components:
75

    
76
  * ability to adapt the Astakos, Pithos and Cyclades Web UI to a company’s
77
    visual identity. This is possible using the snf-branding component, which
78
    is automatically installed on the nodes running the API servers for
79
    Astakos, Pithos and Cyclades.
80

    
81

    
82
* Create a JSON-exportable definition document for each Synnefo Components

  (Astakos, Cyclades, Pithos, etc.) that consolidates APIs (services),
84
  resources, and other standardized properties (e.g. default URL prefixes).
85
* Implement common client for communication with Astakos and proper error
86
  handling.
87

95
    component (e.g. cyclades) along with the services it provides (e.g.
96
    compute, plankton) and the resources it handles (e.g. vm, cpu).
97

    
98
* All API calls are moved under '/account/v1.0'.
99
* Support API calls for quotas, commissions and resources.
100
* Improved user activation process
101
* Improve limit of pending applications by making it a quotable resource.
102

110
  other services.
111
