User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.14) Gecko/20110218 AskTbGOM2/3.9.1.14019 Firefox/3.6.14 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729) SearchToolbar/1.2
Build Identifier: 

This API (documentation for it at http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Main_page ) is useful in monitoring the wiki system, allowing certain automated bots to access it and getting database dumps for the wiki. Just searching via any of the Special:SpecialPages is hard enough without the API to help.

Reproducible: Always
Component: other.mozilla.org → wiki.mozilla.org
Can I see a usecase please for this ability (if, indeed, there is still a demand)?
Whiteboard: [featurerequest]
The api is already available at https://wiki.mozilla.org/api.php.
