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 mw.org
Comment 1 Sam Reed (reedy) 2011-07-17 17:20:12 UTC
ApiComparePages
ApiFeedContributions
ApiFileRevert
ApiPageSet (is one really needed?)
ApiQueryFilearchive
ApiQueryIWBacklinks
ApiQueryIWLinks
ApiQueryLangBacklinks
ApiQueryQueryPage
ApiQueryStashImageInfo
ApiQueryWatchlistRaw
ApiResult (is one really needed?)
ApiRsd

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Is this bug still accurate (api docs out of date)?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 mediawiki.org.

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