Confirming, as it's not "pretty", however, it's not misbehaving, there's just nothing there to be shown. If you want data back, you need to execute complete API calls (see https://wiki.mozilla.org/Update:Remora_API_Docs).

Well, we could put a redirect to the actual AMO into place?

If we put a redirect in place, we could point it to an FAQ item explaining what services.AMO is.
I think that the API docs are the best resource to redirect to, since that is where curious developers are most likely interested in. But this sounds like a .htaccess file change, and not a code change.

This sounds good to me.

Users who are wondering why their computer is accessing that domain (using netstat for example) will less likely want to see a technical page but a simple page which will give them the answer in two short sentences. That page can be linked to the application required to access the server and to more technical documents.

Well, this should be on the front page of the API docs anyway. Two or three sentences to explain what the AMO API is. I think people tech-savvy enough to run netstat will be able to understand that.
Marking as a good first bug since a redirect should be simple

Thanks for filing this.  In an effort to not drown in existing reports we're aggressively closing old enhancements and bugs to get the buglist to a reasonable level so we can scope and process bug sprints in an effective manner.

Patches for this bug are still welcome.
