Expose droplet history over API and/or RSS/Atom

I have accidentally stumbled upon the issue with the droplet on the droplet page, in "Droplet History".

Looks like this history is not exposed via API or RSS/Atom, so there is no way get informed about such events, but going to every and each droplet and looking at their logs.

It would be very useful then to have those logs exposed over API or authenticated feed to be able to pull this data automatically.

    Hi! We recently released version 2 of our API into public beta. This includes adding a new `droplets/$DROPLET_ID/actions` endpoint that exposes the droplet's history. Check out the documentation at: https://developers.digitalocean.com/v2/#retrieve-actions-for-a-droplet While the beta is on-going, we’re looking for as much feedback as possible. If there’s anything else you’d like to see in the API, please open an issue over on our GitHub page: http://do.co/APIv2_feedback Thanks!
