Details

I don't know if the aim with the REST compatibility layer was to get absolute perfection or not. I guess it's OK to have new fields which are not present at all on BzAPI, like is_open, because that shouldn't break anything. But it's probably an issue if you change the behaviour of fields which BzAPI does return.

If a user doesn't have a real_name, BzAPI omits the field, but Compat returns it as "":
