Given the current global crisis, Blink's API owners would like to err on the side of stability and consistency to avoid placing additional burdens on web developers. To that end, we will be conservative about breaking changes in the short-term, and do not plan to approve intents that pose web compatibility risk to existing sites for the time being (e.g. deprecations/removals or behavioral changes). We intend to revisit this policy on a monthly basis, and will update this thread as things develop.
Intents that are already approved are still approved. We plan to take a pass through them to reevaluate risk, and will reply to their Intent to Ship threads on blink-dev@ if we have concerns.
Thanks for your understanding. Stay safe, stay home, and wash your hands!
-- The API owners
P.S. This doesn’t affect Intents to Prototype or Experiment. We encourage you to continue landing code behind flags, including for potentially breaking changes.
