Requests for comment/API roadmap/Naming Cleanup

Jump to navigation Jump to search


  • A prefix with a '*' means this module can be used as a generator
  • '→?' column should have an X on the lines with proposed changes
  • '→?? - need a new two letter prefix
  • All core modules must have two letter prefixes
  • All query extensions must have at least three letter prefixes
  • Actions should not have prefixes

list=watchlistraw and possibly list=watchlist should be renamed to clarify their meaning. watchlistraw is a list of monitored pages. watchlist is the list of changes done to the monitored pages. Looking for better naming.
