Now that Warehouse is preparing to replace the old PyPI codebase I think it would be a good idea if the old PyPI API documentation pages on the Python wiki would link to the new Warehouse API documentation.

Specifically,

- https://wiki.python.org/moin/PyPISimple ought to link to https://warehouse.readthedocs.io/api-reference/legacy/

- https://wiki.python.org/moin/PyPIJSON ought to link to https://warehouse.readthedocs.io/api-reference/json/

- https://wiki.python.org/moin/PyPIXmlRpc ought to link to https://warehouse.readthedocs.io/api-reference/xml-rpc/

The wiki pages are immutable so I cannot do this myself.

(I'm not sure if this is the right bug tracker.  Apologies if I got it wrong!)

You should probably bring this up on the packaging mailing list:

https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/distutils-sig

or on the Warehouse issue tracker:

The problem mgedmin is experiencing is that these particular wiki.python.org pages are immutable, which is not a problem Warehouse maintainers (like me) can solve, and I believe it's also not a problem people on distutils-sig can solve. Perhaps this is an infrastructure question that should go into https://github.com/python/psf-infra-meta/issues ?

wiki.python.org pages aren't immutable.  Anyone can ask for Wiki editing permission.  See https://wiki.python.org/moin/:

If you want to edit a page and have just signed up, or you find that you can no longer edit a page that you could edit before, please write to the pydotorg-www mailing list, stating your account name and your intended edits and we'll add you to the EditorsGroup.
