* Create a JSON-exportable definition document for each Synnefo Components
  (Astakos, Cyclades, Pithos, etc.) that consolidates APIs (services),
  resources, and other standardized properties (e.g. default URL prefixes).

* Standardize URLs for Synnefo Components, impose structure and naming
  conventions to related settings. Make each component deployable under
  a user-configurable <COMPONENT>_BASE_URL. Each API (compute, image, etc.)
  is deployable under a developer-configurable prefix beneath BASE_URL.

179
  Astakos.
180 181 182 183 184 185 186 187 188 189 190 191

  * Simplified the quotaholder model; removed tables Entity and Policy; now
    table Holding contains limit and usage for every holding.
  * Extended table Holding, so that we can keep track of quota for every
    valid combination of holder (e.g. user), resource, and source (e.g. the
    default system or some specific project).
  * Refactored code for issuing and resolving commissions for robustness;
    added a 'force' option to bypass the upper limit check when issuing a
    commission.
  * Simplified syncing to the quotaholder; removed fields from models
    Project and ProjectMembership, previously needed for syncing; removed
    state PROJECT_DEACTIVATED from ProjectMembership.
192 193 194
  * Removed settings ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_URL, ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_TOKEN,
    and ASTAKOS_QUOTAHOLDER_POOLSIZE.

195 196 197 198 199 200
* API-related changes:

  * Implemented API calls for quota, resources, and commissions.
  * Moved all API calls under '/account/v1.0'.
  * Implemented the keystone API call POST /tokens under '/identity/v2.0'.

201 202
* Service and resource specification and handling:

203 204 205 206 207 208 209
  * Specified a format for defining services along with the API endpoints
    and the resources they expose. Migrated internal resource name by
    prefixing it with service name (e.g. 'vm' becomes 'cyclades.vm');
    renamed registered service 'pithos+' to 'pithos'.
  * Specified a procedure to register a Synnefo component, its services and
    their resources in astakos and set the resources' default base quota
    limit. Removed resource definitions from settings.
210 211 212 213 214 215 216 217 218 219 220 221 222 223 224 225 226 227 228 229 230
  * Moved service and resource presentation data out of the respective db
    models into a separate file of UI constants.

* Converted the limit on pending applications from a setting to a quotable
  resource. Converted the related user setting to a user-specific base quota
  limit. Deprecated model UserSetting; removed setting
  ASTAKOS_PENDING_APPLICATION_LIMIT.

* Changes in locking strategy:

  * Lock only project's chain for all project operations; lock user before
    syncing to quotaholder.
  * When locking multiple rows (e.g. users or holdings) include an ORDER BY
    clause in the query to impose ordering on locking.

* Changes in views:

  * Replaced custom transaction context with a simple decorator for managing
    transactions and a context 'ExceptionHandler', which logs and suppresses
    exceptions

231 232 233 234 235 236 237 238 239 240
* Added fine grain user auth provider's policies.

  * Administrator can override default auth provider policies to a specific 
    user or group of users.
  * Optionally a user can be assigned to a list of groups, based on the
    authentication method he choosed to signup.

* Removed explicit handling of SMTP errors on each email delivery. Exceptions 
  are now propagated to base django exception handler.

241 242 243 244
* Email used in html/email tempaltes which prompt user to contact for service 
  support prompts is now defined in ``CONTACT_EMAIL`` setting introduced in 
  snf-common settings.

245 246 247 248 249 250 251 252
* Improvements in user activation flow

  * User moderation now takes place after the user has verified his email
    address.
  * User model enriched with additional user state fields
  * Split activation email from moderation process. Administrator is required 
    to moderate user explicitly using the `user-modify --accept` or
    `user-modify --reject` commands.
253
  * Improved logging throught out user activation procedures.
