[Proposal] Making the Service Broker API less CF-specific

Matt McNeeney

The Open Service Broker API [1] working group have created a proposal [2]
to make the Service Broker API less CF-specific. The proposed changes will
help grow the services community by allowing service broker authors to
create and deliver services to a range of cloud-native platforms (including
Cloud Foundry, OpenShift and Kubernetes).

The key parts of the proposal are:

- Platforms can *optionally* send a new *context *parameter to service
brokers containing platform-specific information (a Cloud Foundry platform
would send the platform name, the organization GUID and the space GUID).
- The existing *required *CF-specific parameters, *organization_guid *and
*space_guid *will be marked as deprecated to be removed from the
specification in a future version.

We'd love to get some feedback from the community on this proposal.

Many thanks,
