[Mediawiki-api-announce] REST API soon redirecting to canonical URLs

Gabriel Wicke-3
Hi,

this is to let you know that we will start redirecting GET requests
with non-canonical titles to their canonical equivalent next week.
This is done to improve caching, and to ensure reliable purging of
cached responses.

The vast majority of clients handle redirects transparently, so at
most this will lead to a small slow-down from the redirect. To avoid
being redirected, make sure to use underscores instead of spaces, as
in "Main_Page".

Thanks,

Gabriel Wicke
