#16985: XML-RPC endpoint set the datetime when saving a Draft

Component:  XML-RPC       |    Version:  3.1
 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 When uploading a draft post from one of the WordPress mobile apps the post
 date is set to the current time/date, even if the datetime field is not
 specified on the client request.
 This could cause issues, because when you change the post status to
 "publish" it will be published using the date set during the first upload.

 On the web dashboard if you do not set the post datetime explicitly, it is
 not set and hitting publish will then populate the datetime field with the
 current time.

 The same happens if you start a draft on the web and then you publish it
 using any mobile apps.
