------- Additional Comments From Tracy.Monteith@level3.com  2003-01-28 20:37 -------
We're all development professionals here.  We must consider the question of 
managing user expectations.  When a user sees an link labeled "API" he expects 
to be given the API.  Here API isn't available for one of the following 
reasons:    technical-inadequate drive space.
non-technical - The organizational policy that should be looking elsewhere.

When the user sees "API not generated", it appears to be a bug and 
expectations are not met.  

As a strong proponent of opensource software, I believe should maintain our 
web pages to the highest professional level possible.  That said, I recommend 
the fix to be one of the following:
1.  Fix the link
2.  Remove the link
3.  When clicked, Direct the user elsewhere.

Hope this helps.
