Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.
We're developing some extensions with WebAPIResource's, and we're
developing new WebAPIError's for these endpoints. We're not sure what we're
supposed to be choosing for the WebAPIError error codes (not the HTTP
status codes). They seem to be arbitrarily chosen. At this point, we just
know we should probably avoid colliding with any error codes from Review
Board, Djblets or any of our other extensions.
I can see this becoming more of an issue as more and more extensions become
available and introduce new WebAPIErrors. I'm really not sure how best (or
how necessary it is) to avoid collisions with other WebAPIError status
codes. One thing I was thinking about was having some code in the package
store that scans Review Board extensions for WebAPIErrors and collects the
codes that are being used, and provide a list of those error codes. That
way, a developer could choose wisely and avoid collision.
