I'm not representitive of the WMF, however I do not understand why they
should have to bend over for your lack of attention to announcements for
this change. Roan's live hack to the API for the time being was very kind,
however to ask the WMF tech team to rollback the entire protocol-relative
switch so you can get yourself prepared is somewhat rude. They've been
working on this for some time, and this change is depended upon by other
projects (The new SSL system)
Also, since you're not even using the API (Which is another issue in
itself), why are you even posting to mediawiki-api?

We are not adding any extra arguments to the GET.
Is this the wrong place to be noting this new problem? I assumed that
Wikipedia was running the latest MediaWiki?
All we would need is a rollback for approx 8-10 days. We have hordes of
iPad app users of the WikiNodes app complaining that they can not see the
images in the app.

if you showed us a link
to exactly where in the API you're seeing that, we'd be able to figure
out what the problem is that you're still seeing?

We can submit an update to the Apple App Store on Monday, which will then
take 7 days to be approved. If you could postpone this change until
10-October, we can fix the code on our side.
