AWS compatibility perspective back into OpenStack

The growth of OpenStack has been largely inclusive of it's own API, making it an excellent choice for private cloud
solutions. However, large cloud vendors such as Amazon AWS remain dominant and continue to excel in the public cloud space.
OpenStack began by providing EC2 API compatibility, and still does, but the growth and innovation around OpenStack API needs to be complemented with continued support for EC2 API, and maintain compatible feature parity with AWS, for it to be really a strong choice for public cloud migration, and adoption.
I think compatibility is an important middle-ground between innovation and existing user migration, and shouldn't be ignored.

A part of the community can contribute to ensuring AWS compatibility in parallel with the ongoing innovation efforts around OpenStack API.
This session proposes the following:
* Present data to show EC2 API compatibility gaps in the current software
* Discuss where third party compatibility testing has lacked, and needs improved coverage, particularly Tempest
* Call for ways the community can collaborate on development efforts for third party compatibility
