Final reminder on this: We are planning to finally sunset
rest.wikimedia.org in the week starting April 25th, 1 1/2 weeks from
now. Please move your REST API clients to /api/rest_v1/ at the regular
project domains instead!

This will happen in a week's time. We are, however, still observing quite a volume of requests for mobile sections endpoints using the rest.wikimedia.org domain. Specifically, almost all of the requests are asking for resources pertaining to the de.wikipedia.org domain. Unfortunately no user-agent header is provided so we are not able to pin-point the client. Please ensure your clients point to https://{domain}/api/rest_v1/ instead of https://rest.wikimedia.org/{domain}/v1/.
