Ah, OK. I'm replying only on the Marketing List now, then.

Great, will contact both Patrick and Paul on IRC about this.
Since this reply is on the mailing list anyway, if anyone else has an idea about the WP
API, please do let me know. :)
Since the `wp-json` API is a default Wordpress plugin, so anyone with access to the
Fedora Magazine WP-admin should be able to re-enable it.
Essentially, I am hoping for a way to just fetch Fedora Magazine post links, banner
images, and maybe article summaries. This is all provided by the `wp-json` API.
This isn't meant to drive any traffic away from the Blog, since clicking on any links
will still lead to the actual webpage.
Rather I want to just to give users a sort of feed reader, from where they can access the
Magazine and other resources, at once.
This might also be useful for other projects / teams too (e.g. Fedora
Hubs). I have admin privileges on the Magazine, but I'm mostly looking
for a +1 from one of the Infrastructure team members who may know more
about why the API is disabled or if there are any issues with it being

Thanks, Justin! Appreciate the help. :D
No problem, always my pleasure. :)
