Description Roan Kattouw 2008-05-07 20:15:24 UTC
There should be an API module that autogenerates an XML schema (kind of like a blueprint for the API's output, specs @ ), much like the current API help is autogenerated.
Comment 1 Victor Vasiliev 2008-05-21 17:51:47 UTC
I'm on it

I'll re-assign to you then.

Don't presume you got anywhere with this VVV?
Comment 4 Umherirrender 2012-10-04 17:25:51 UTC
Since Gerrit change #6394 the api modules have a method getResultProperties, which is also outputted with action=paraminfo. So the information about the output exist and maybe can be processed to xml/xsd

I'm proposing to WONTFIX this bug: situation has changed since then, XML requests are less than 10% overall, and all the API developers hate XML with passion. We should be working towards killing this format, not adding more enterprisey cruft to it.

No objections voiced --> executing.
