Synnefo-wide
85
------------
86
* Standardize URLs for Synnefo Components:
87

    
88
  * impose structure and naming conventions to all URL related settings. Make
89
    each component deployable under a user-configurable <COMPONENT>_BASE_URL.

91
    developer-configurable prefix beneath BASE_URL.
92

    
93
* Branding customization support across synnefo frontend components:
94

    
95
  * ability to adapt the Astakos, Pithos and Cyclades Web UI to a company’s

97
    is automatically installed on the nodes running the API servers for
98
    Astakos, Pithos and Cyclades.
99

    
100

    
101
* Create a JSON-exportable definition document for each Synnefo Components

103
  resources, and other standardized properties (e.g. default URL prefixes).
104
* Implement common client for communication with Astakos and proper error
105
  handling.
106

112

    
113

114
    component (e.g. cyclades) along with the services it provides (e.g.
115
    compute, plankton) and the resources it handles (e.g. vm, cpu).
116

    
117
* All API calls are moved under '/account/v1.0'.
118
* Support API calls for quotas, commissions and resources.
119
* Improved user activation process
120
* Improve limit of pending applications by making it a quotable resource.
