Provide timestamps in the /page/talk/ endpoint
Open, MediumPublic

Description

Background
As explained in T298250, the Android team wants to offer a sort option for user and article talk pages. The categories to sort should include Date posted and Date updated. However, we can not offer this feature because we don't receive the timestamps/dates from the server.

The Task
Serve up timestamps/dates of talk page edits in the /page/talk endpoint

Event Timeline

cooltey renamed this task from Provide date stamps so that the Android team can properly offer sorting by date as an option to users to Provide timestamps in the /page/talk/ endpoint.Jan 11 2022, 6:10 PM
cooltey updated the task description. (Show Details)

I believe this is going to be irrelevant by https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T285971. If that new API works as expected, we may even be able to deprecate the /page/talk endpoint.
