These are the urls for a couple of my valid endpoint tests of the /revisions methods.

These urls are valid but very often I recieve

{ "error": { "code": 500, "message": "A generic error has occurred on the server; developers have been notified." } }

If I retry immediately the same error is returned. If I wait a few minutes before retrying it seems to work fine. this happens more often with the first url (/revisions). in fact if you hit it and refresh a few times you are likely to get a repro.

It is as if the endpoint 'heats up and needs to cool down' or there is an undocumented, harsh and anonymous throttle being implemented (i doubt this).

ooooeeeeee, whassup up widat? whassup up widat?
