Bobby, I assume this release note request is not to the MDN docs team?
I intended it to be for the product release notes — I'm not sure how those relate to the ones on MDN.
FYI The MDN release note for this is here.
Thanks. I might propose rewording the relnote slightly as follows:
The WebMIDI API is now available in secure contexts. Calls to
navigator.requestMIDIAccess() will prompt users with active MIDI devices to install a Site Permission Add-On, which is required to enable the API.
Does that seem reasonable? I think linking Site Permission Add-On to the SUMO page, as you do now, should give people enough context if they want to learn more, and that there's no need to send them to this bug.
It does not mention that the mechanism is experimental.
The "experimental" just means that we want to see how well the Site Permission Add-On mechanism works for WebMIDI before we'd consider using it for anything else. This isn't something that users need to worry about.
