Replying to nprasath002:

Can u explain the use of the function prepare_term?

The idea is to have only a single place where we perform any manipulation of term data before returning the data to the XML-RPC client.

Since term(s) are used in wp.getTerm, wp.getTerms, wp.getPostTerms, wp.getPost, and wp.getPosts, it makes more sense to have a single function than to have similar/duplicate code in all five.

It's currently a trivial operation, but this will make it easier to modify in the future when/if core adds new fields to terms (like the legendary term meta). It also is a convenient location to have a filter hook for plugins to modify the output.

Should there be a argument to get only the terms for one taxonomy instead of all of them? I do believe it is needed since you don't know else from which taxonomy the term is from

I think this and #18435 are no longer necessary.

wp.getPostTerms(0, user, pass, post_id) is basically equivalent to wp.getPost(0, user, pass, post_id, array( 'terms' )). And you can do the same thing with wp.editPost to replace wp.setPostTerms.

I don't think it's worth the effort of maintaining two methods in core when one will suffice.

For getting yes, not needed. For setting I wasn't sure but I have no problem closing both tickets
