Excerpts from Ryan Rix's message of 2012-08-22 01:40:05 +0000:
> Heya everyone,
> A few spaces now have begun to notice some limitations with the existing 
> SpaceAPI implementations and want to expand upon it in a properly planned 
> fashion and in a way that does not step on the toes of any existing efforts. 
> As a result, we have scheduled an IRC meeting to help in this planning. 
> Our primary discussion will revolve around the integration of 'external' APIs 
> to each SpaceAPI endpoint. For example, we at HeatSync Labs have been working 
> on making our Open Access Control system web enabled (currently through a 
> desktop connected to the OAC over serial, but soon with an Ethernet Arduino), 
> and would like to expose that functionality in a standardised way. We are also 
> implementing PAMELA, and a few other external service we would like exposed to 
> the hackerspace world. Pumping Station One has a bunch of APIs as well that 
> are not currently exposed on SpaceAPI.
> If any of this interests you, please stop by! :)
> SpaceAPI Discussion Meetup
> Topics for Discussion:
> * Integration of external API endpoints in to the SpaceAPI definitions
> * Integration with Open Access Control
> When: Wed Aug 29 18:00 – 20:00 Mountain Time - Arizona
> Where: #SpaceAPI on irc.freenode.net
> That is, unfortunately, 01:00 UTC, sorry Europeans. :(


This development sounds exciting!
