Making WordPress.org

#3114 closed defect (fixed)

The credits API responds with latest version data for old versions

Reported by: johnbillion Owned by: obenland
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: API Keywords: needs-patch


The response to requesting https://api.wordpress.org/core/credits/1.1/?version=3.1 and earlier versions is credits data for the latest version of WordPress, but this is not immediately obvious unless you check the data.version property.

Requests for credits information prior to 3.2 should respond with something more appropriate, for example a 404.

Maybe we could parse the props and backfill the credits data for older releases?

Yeah backfilling the older versions' data would be great

In 7300:

Credits: Bail for credits prior to 3.2.

There are no credits for versions earlier than that.

Props johnbillion.
