I've been working on a new version of my Geni gem (http://github.com/aurels/geni) and I'm adding some unit tests.

Here are some questions/remarks about the API and its docs.

[documents, photos, videos]

* docs : item has a date
* json : item has a created_on


* I always get an empty hash for the 'date_parts' field.


* curator : What is it ? How can I put a curator on my profile e.g. ?


* json has no 'title' field (is it set to undefined when there isn't any ?)
* json has no 'date_parts' field
* json has no 'sizes' field

Is there a way to be updated about detailed changes in the API (new fields etc) in order to keep my gem in sync ?

Thanks ;-)

[documents, photos, videos]
all of them have a created_on (when they were uploaded)
and a date (editable date related to the document)

This means you don't have a date set on the photo

Curators wiki page: http://wiki.geni.com/index.php/Curators_--_and_how_YOU_can_help

Title and date may not be set.
If you don't have view permission on the video, you won't see the sizes.

We're in the process of updating our documentation. I'll make sure there's a "What's New" section.

Ok thanks for the light on the date thing ;-)

Good idea for the "what's new" change log. I suppose you guys would also update the @TheGeniAPI twitter account.

Keep up the good work !
