As far as I know nothing under /public is part of the official &

It is explicit stated that it is not official. It is only for
OBS interconnect:


https://github.com/openSUSE/open-build-service/blob/master/docs/api/api/api.txt#L2048

My experience with OBS interfaces is "everything can break any time and
will not necessarily be fixed, because it was broken on purpose".
And "backporting stuff to stable releases is a rare event, because OBS
developers only run unstable code anyway".

hey, you can count the numbers we changed incompatible on your hands.
And they are mentioned in ReleaseNotes always.

IMHO we a very good job in keeping a 15 years old api compatible
and only extend it. There are not many doing that for that period
of time...
