/dev/api: Clarify the xml/rss api documentation

The xml extension in the api documentation is slightly misleading in
that it appears to indicate that we support an xml api. The .xml
extension is intended for rss consumption so we are replacing the
'extensions' with an rss support flag.

reddit

Greetings!

This is the primary codebase that powers reddit.com.

For notices about major changes and general discussion of reddit development, subscribe to the /r/redditdev and /r/changelog subreddits.

You can also chat with us via IRC in #reddit-dev on FreeNode.


Quickstart

To set up your own instance of reddit to develop with, we have a handy install script for Ubuntu that will automatically install and configure most of the stack.

Alternatively, refer to our Install Guide for instructions on setting up reddit from scratch. Many frequently asked questions regarding local reddit installs are covered in our FAQ.

APIs

To learn more about reddit's API, check out our automated API documentation and the API wiki page. Please use a unique User-Agent string and take care to abide by our API rules.

Happy hacking!
