Could anyone knowledgeable be so kind as to inform me of the current

1. Is it functional, stable ?
2. What can be done with it currently?
3. To what extent does the 389 server need to be configured before the REST API can be
It's partially functional, but not stable. You can use it to search and
change some values, but not a lot.
You need to do a lot of work to make the rest api currently usable. I
would say unless you are willing to get deep into some python 3 code, on
Fedora 24 or higher, you may not want to use it yet. If you are keen,
I'm happy to get some docs updated so you can give it a go.
I'm glad you're interested in it though, and pay attention for more
updates in this space.
If you want to follow more, have a look at the 389-devel mailing list,
and look at our trac instance. A lot of the work at the moment is laying
the foundations for lib389 (our python library) so that the rest api
(rest389) is a thin layer on top. For the moment you may want to look at
what we are doing with the new command tools, as this will have similar
capabilities to rest in the future.
