Hello Devs,

Looks like there is not much feedback on the api-documentation.

First of april is coming closer. So if you have an opinion on the 
api-documentation give feedback till 1. April 2019.

My personal feedback
I think it is good to have an online api.documentation. But if it is not 
used, we can switch it of. Personally I also do not use it.
* so +1 to switch the  https://api.mapbender.org/
* Future: the documentation is still in the code, so maybe in the future 
we find an easy solution to deploy the documentation or we find a 
volunteer to work on it.

Best regards Astrid
