XMLRPC returns category name instead of category description (1 post)

    I am using the XML-RPC interface into wordpress, and when I use the wp.getCategories XML-RPC call, I get the category name twice in the returned data - instead of the category description, the category name is repeated.

    The problem comes from the routine mw_getCategories inside xmlrpc.php - it reads:

    function mw_getCategories($args) {
    ...
      $struct['description'] = $cat->name;
      $struct['categoryName'] = $cat->name;
    ...
      return $categories_struct;
    }

    whereas I'd expect it to be

    function mw_getCategories($args) {
    ...
      $struct['description'] = $cat->description; //<<<<<
      $struct['categoryName'] = $cat->name;
    ...
      return $categories_struct;
    }

    I checked the 2.7RC1 - the same problem exists there.

    Is this a feature or a bug? Not sure how I should go about this - I am an old developer, but new to WordPress, so I don't know the proper 'etiquette' yet...
