 I know we are still thinking about what is the best option between merging
 or including into a build step the BP REST API. Reading the thread of the
 ticket makes me feel, and I agree about this choice, that we can wait
 until all the remaining endpoints are built into the BP REST plugin before
 merging. It's the choice that leaves us all options: as @boonebgorges said
 during dev-chat "''once we go Trac, we can't go back''".

 So I've been thinking about this scenario and built the
 7156.patch]. Here's what it does :

 - put the REST Controllers into their components class directory (eg: `src
 - make sure all `@since 0.1.0` are replaced by `@since 5.0.0`,
 - make sure the `buddypress.pot` is generated after the REST endpoints
 have been added to the build directory.
 - copy the functions listed into the `/includes/functions.php` file of the
 BP REST plugin into `src/bp-core/bp-core-rest-api.php`. (PS: I've added a
 [https://github.com/buddypress/BP-REST/pull/188 pull-request] about what
 needs to be done into the BP REST plugin about this).
 - update the class autoloader for the REST Controllers.
 - add a new method `rest_api_init()` to `BP_Component` and the components
 having REST controllers.
 - make sure these methods are only used when the WordPress version of the
 site is > `4.7.0` and the BP REST plugin is not active.

 On a side note I had to edit a unit test that was deleting the
 $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] global. Feedbacks welcome 😉
