#4590 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Does XMLRPC need a wp_supportedPostAttributes method?

Reported by: redsweater Owned by: josephscott
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.2.1
Component: XML-RPC Keywords: close

At this point (2.2.1) the additional wp_ enhancements to the MovableType post structure are sort of implicitly supported by the advertisement of the "WordPress" API in the RSD for the blog. But as time goes on (adding wp_tags in 2.3?), it will be harder for clients to know which subset of the wp_ enhancements is available on a given blog.

Would it make sense to add a data attribute equivalent of the mt_supportedMethods call? I think this would really help clients in easily determining which of the wp_ enhancements they can take advantage of.

I'm thinking that lack of support for the call will mean "the original set of wp_ attributes is supported", and if the call is supported then obviously it's exactly that set of attributes (it should include all the mt_attributes, too).

I believe this ticket can be closed as wont-fix since of all the wp methods and its hard to maintain something like that.
