Thanks Guilhem for your answer :) Didn't know you brought the answers on
the lists as well. Was only checking the Discourse :P

From a security and reliability POV wrt. AskBot, this is an urgent step

Depending on where you're coming from (AskBot user or moderator, infra
team, BoD, community at large) you might define urgency differently.
FWIW AskBot upstream is still contracted by TDF to maintain the instance
and last autumn I (painfully) upgraded the backend to an OS with 3 years
before EOL still so I fail to see the security threat.

Like explained in the infra meeting of today, the urgency is expressed
from a dev POV. AskBot to take an analogy is like the Apache OpenOffice
of the forums: using outdated Python libs with /potential/ security
issues. Of course, I know TDF (and you) are irreproachable wrt. OS and
infra updates. Was speaking about upstream app here ;)

Backporting the commit to add /api/v1/answers/
was trivial so the public API should now be enough for a complete
migration aside from account linking (which needs to be done by the
infra team anyway).  With the scrolling API it's even easy to fetch a
dozens page of questions/users, see .

Thanks a lot for that! Like explaining in the meeting, I'll reach out to
Mauricio and Daniel since the answer API node is now present \o/ Youhou*

2021 to decide to switch to Discourse? ^^
