Can someone explain this stacker thing? I'm just tuning to it and it seems to be associated with using the api via xmlrpc

apparently stacker is where the xmlrpc api is "exposed" on a portal

Yep, thats right. Check my wiki article to get some stuff via PHP and XMLRPC. :)

Stacker is the internal codename for the Desktop client.

I've posted some info on using python to access the api via xmlrpc, I needed an example, so I added one :)

Yeah, we were initially tempted to call the Desktop "The Stacker" but then sanity prevailed. ;)

That said, the XML-RPC API endpoint *is* still at http://<SITEURL>/stacker or if you're running your script / PHP on the same host, you could even use if you wish.

There are also a couple of more endpoints, there's an anonymous accessible one for forgot password functionality, and another requiring Manager privileges for registering users and so on.

So the API endpoints are:
stacker <- Normal end-user API endpoint
anonymousfunctions <- Anonymous-accessible functions
adminfunctions <- Manager privileges only

ALL of this is inside the ubify.xmlrpc package.
