All this data is potentially out of date, and should be taken with a truckload of salt

This is a list i've compiled of API improvement suggestions
- In the membertracking CSV file, the newline characters in people's titles aren't properly escaped within the CSV file so using PHP functions like getcsv are broken when people have titles with newline characters. you pretty much have to use the XML output because the workaround to be able to use the CSV output properly uses some pretty complicated regular expressions.
- We need a full contracts API. Currently the only information you can get about contracts is from the Wallet, and contract related entries don't list the items contained within or even who you were interacting with. This is important because much of the expenditures and transport of goods in large alliances are through contracts, and adding the system will help greatly with auditing and stuff like that.
- Needs more detailed information about Blueprints from the assets API(such as ME, PE information, copy or original). there is an extremely poor workaround available if you use the "corp industry jobs"( http://wiki.eve-id.net/APIv2_Corp_IndustryJobs_XML ) API, and I think something needs to be done to allow players full access to this information
