The API draft is now available for public viewing and covers:
- Levels of privacy and other contextual terminology.
- Public query API by way of illustrative HTTP query dialogues.
- Protected Data query via OAuth.
- OAuth Workflow is illustrated in some depth
This is a pre-release of the API; it is nearly there, but it would be foolish to assume that the API will not change if any difficulties arise or if a better way is agreed upon.
Google Doc version of API:
