metaWeblog.getCategories: Description doesn't return name of the category

  1. I use metaWeblogAPI(python) to post on my wordpress.com blog. WordPress(<2.7) returns the name of the category for the "description" key. This is in conformance with the MetaWeblog API as specified in http://www.xmlrpc.com/metaWeblogApi

    For 2.7RC*, the categoryName key returns the name of the category. I could see that the change was done with changeset(http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/8494).

    Wouldn't this change break the existing metaWeblog clients?

  2. Good point. I've re-opened ticket http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/8494 and added a new patch the reverts this change and adds a new field called 'categoryDescription' to provide the WordPress category description.
