Re: Default API response type: XML -> JSON


I do think it is an interesting proposal. I have been thinking, and what if
we do something different; what about a global parameter where the root
admin can define the default serialization mechanism (XML, JSON, RDF,
others...)? The default value could be XML to maintain backward
compatibility. Then, it is up to the root admin to define this behavior.
