wm-bot uses WDDX for API requests to wikitech, source: - please switch it to a non-deprecated format, preferably JSON.

bzimport raised the priority of this task from to Medium.Nov 22 2014, 3:55 AM
bzimport added a project: WM-Bot.
bzimport set Reference to bz71543.

Now that WDDX is set to die in May, priority can't be lowest;)

While auto-assigning in Bugzilla is convenient, I do wonder if it leads to cookie-licking.

I think that this requests module is either going to die before May or it needs complete rewrite. I don't even think anyone still uses it?

Ricordisamoa set Security to None.
Ricordisamoa subscribed.

I don't even think anyone still uses it?

That does not seem to have been true in February. But logs of wm-bot hitting format=wddx suddenly stopped on April 8, so maybe it's fixed now.
