    To follow/unfollow a repo you make a GET to To follow/unfollow a user you make a GET to To follow/unfollow an issue you make a GET to

    I will create an internal issue to create some documentation around this.

    Thanks for the info. While those URLs work, they are the standard links from the web interface. I was hoping for something more RESTful. These don't provide any json response like the rest of the API.

    Yeah, they are the URLs we use from the UI. In this case a 200 is your success and anything else is failure.

    We hope to look at reworking the REST api at some point but it will likely not be in the short term.
