/** * Enable the experimental REST API. * * This will be removed once the REST API is stable and used by clients. */ $wgEnableRestAPI = false;
What is missing before we can set this to default enabled? Since VisualEditor/Parsoid being shipped in 1.35 is expected to rely on rest.php. As we would like to push most users to enable VE/Parsoid, doing so would effectively enable the Rest API for most users...in which case we should just flip the default to enabled.
If there are blockers, we should have them block this task so we can figure out how reasonable this is for 1.35 and in general.
