Comment (by rachelbaker):

 In [changeset:"39402"]:
 #!CommitTicketReference repository="" revision="39402"
 REST API: Fix incorrect capability check on term create.

 Change the capability check used in `WP_REST_Terms_Controller` when
 creating a new term is attempted, from `manage_terms` to `edit_terms`.
 This matches the behavior within the WordPress admin. See #35614.

 Props johnbillion, rmccue, rachelbaker, helen, jorbin, SergeyBiryukov.

 Fixes #38958.
