Confirmed eBay API Bug on GetCategorySpecifics Call
I recently had a script related to the GetCategorySpecifics Call break on me and looked into it further. The call no longer pays any attention to the "Name" field. Whatever you put in the name field is ignored in the response. For instance if you do a search within category 11483 with the Name "Inseam", you should only receive item specific suggestions related to the item specific "inseam". However the response will spit out ALL the item specifics in category 11483, including brand, size, material, etc. This is not how this API used to respond and obviously not how it is intended to behave. I do not know where to post this to get this to eBay developer's attention, so I hope it will be seen here.
