Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The official introduction states the phantastic Stack Exchange Data Explorer (SEDE) to be

a web tool for sharing, querying, and analyzing the Creative Commons data from every website in the Stack Exchange network [emphasis mine]

Does this indeed imply Open Data Protocol (OData) endpoints are going to be a regular Stack Exchange service?

Despite sounding pretty clear already I'm specifically asking for confirmation here with regard to my related question Are the Open Data Protocol (OData) endpoints considered to be part of the API?.

OData has nothing to do with the API (at; it's a service of the Stack Exchange Data Explorer.

And yes, all current and future Stack Exchange sites will be featured in the SEDE as they are launched. We might wait a few months to build up enough data (stated another way: long enough to prove they can survive in the wild as public beta websites) for them to be interesting before dumping them, though.
