  • remote testing tool (if functests are sufficient, then at least docs)
  • concurrent reads to a single object
  • on-disk compression

New Client Apps

  • improved language bindings
  • better docs about ideal client access patters for swift

  • better traversal abstractions (how can I get a listing of a large container)
  • metadata searching
  • server-side object splitting (large single-stream upload)
  • multi-range support
  • CORS support
  • on-disk encryption
  • API v2

Basic "Be More Awesome" Things (Misc)

  • FS-specific tuning (eg better disk walking)

  • remove webob
  • replace eventlet?
  • container sharding

Therefore, what are the summit plans?

Any outstanding concerns or questions
