- To reveal everything that Mailman core has via the new admin
I myself am not sure why, but Barry has stated that it's hard to do this, at least in the face of current pace of development of Mailman 3 core. I love Barry and deeply respect his judgment, but I find the idea itself offensive :-), so dealing with it on the core side is on my own TODO list. Let's cooperate!
Love you too, man! I actually don’t remember saying this, but definitely don’t take my word on that :).
If I did say it <wink>, what I probably meant is that there is some functionality which still needs to be exposed in the REST API, and other functionality that could use a more efficient surfacing through the REST API. For example, you want to reduce the roundtrips for common tasks against many objects. This is difficult to do in REST — you basically have to expose collection resources, search resources, etc. but they all feel somewhat artificial to me. GraphQL seems to handle things like this much better, but of course MM3 does not have a GraphQL API.
