In the past meetings both with the upstream Bugzilla community and within the small circle of BMO
developers, we have come up with some ideas on how to move the current API forward and improve it in
both functionality and user documentation. I would like to elicit some constructive feedback on the
two proposals I have outlined in comment0 of the bugs below. People with vested interest in the API
from a developer and consumer standpoint should be interested in the outcomes of these discussions.

Bug 1051056 - The REST API needs to be versioned so that new changes can be made that do not break compatibility

Bug 1038275 - Comprehensible documentation for the REST API
