New issue 2456 by RB API doesn't allow updating changenum field for Git

*NOTE: If you have a patch, please submit it to

What version are you running?

What's the URL of the page this enhancement relates to, if any?

Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.
I'm using API 2.0 to write a script to update the changenum field of a review. The URL is api/review-requests/{review_id}/draft/. It seems only a few fields (such as description, summary, etc) can be updated via HTTP.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
Centos 6

Please provide any additional information below.
I'd like to add the commit SHA1 string associated with the review to the 'Change Number' field so that I can keep track of the commit later on. Because I'm not able to use API to PUT the changenum field, I had to put that info in the description field guarded by a special string as a workaround. I'd love to see API is updated to support updating that field.
