Hi Bryan -- here's a ticket that mobile app team has been using to tracking platform requests.


Deskana renamed this task from Tracking: API issues blocking Wikipedia app development to Tracking: API/backend issues blocking Wikipedia app development.Jan 28 2015, 11:59 PM

Can we prioritize these? What's blocking near term releases/features?

@Eloquence Nothing in this list is blocking feature development right now. Mostly these are either causing performance issues or are areas where features are working suboptimally as a result of the issue. The three highest priority for us in the short term are:

T87824 - Specialised content API for apps
T86955 - Descriptions out of date in image viewer
T87336 - PageImages returning images way below the fold

All of the account creation and login ones are not a priority in the short term, but in the mid term where we're imagining Collections being on the apps then those bubble up in priority because the account creation and login workflow become much more important.

Does that answer your question or do you need more information?

@JMinor @Dbrant Is this task still useful to you two? I created it back when I was the product owner for the apps as a tracking mechanism, so if it's not useful to either of you any more then we can just close it.

I haven't referred to this task in quite a while. I'd be fine with closing.
