2 bits of feedback on the beta announcement:
I have software that reads the stats channel.
Please, if you have a new schema, put it on another URI so that software
that wants the old schema gets it, and software that wants the new
explicitly requests it. E.g. '/statistics/v3'
Flag day changes are not good...
I also have a patch that provides just the config data on another URI
(/config) - which I wish you'd accept in some form - it's very useful
for management software that doesn't want to parse all the stats (which
in perl takes forever), but does want the list of zones served. I sent
it to you folks quite some time ago (and could resend).
Since you're obviously in the code, would you re-consider this? It's
pretty straightforward, it simply selects a subset of the data in the
(then-) existing flow.
Thanks on both counts.
