Description Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-07-17 17:15:23 UTC
While fixing bug 28817, I noticed there are numerous (I'll make a list shortly) of modules that don't (seem) to have documentation pages on
Comment 1 Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-07-17 17:20:12 UTC
ApiPageSet (is one really needed?)
ApiResult (is one really needed?)

Maybe we just use Zaks tool to pull from the inline text (Krinkle?)
Comment 2 Krinkle 2011-07-31 04:31:40 UTC
A few months back I've asked Zak to publish his tool into the repository[1], but never heard back from him. I'll ask him again.

Comment 3 Ariel Test Glenn 2011-11-24 19:14:34 UTC
Is this bug still accurate (api docs out of date)?
Comment 4 Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-11-24 19:17:45 UTC
I think it is to some extent, but nowhere near as bad as it was...

Needs checking again, as we've added a few more modules
Comment 5 Sumana Harihareswara 2012-02-22 06:24:56 UTC
CC'ing Ben Lobaugh as he's interested in improving API docs on

Oh I don't think API docs are perfect, I just think they're much better than everything else.
