Hello, REST API users.
We are planning to deploy a new REST API endpoint for section editing next
week. This will replace the current /transform/sections/to/wikitext/
end point, and will provide the same functionality in a more streamlined
and extensible format.
The existing end point is classified as unstable
<https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API_versioning#Unstable>, which guarantees
that we are making an effort to avoid breaking existing clients. According
to our data, the end point is basically unused at present, which is why we
are aiming at a fairly speedy deploy around Tuesday next week (Aug 30). If
you are using this end point at present & have concerns about its removal,
then let us know here.
