Make possible to obtain issue_priorities and issue_statuses via RESTful WS
It seems that now is impossible to query RESTful WS to retrieve current used issue_priorities and issue_statuses: should be possibile to make possibile generic a redmine client that can update issues changing priority and status

One of my users has reported that could not create issues using Redmine Java API:
org.redmine.ta.RedmineException: Priority can't be blank
I was trying to reproduce the problem on several different Redmine installs with Postgresql, MySQL, different Redmine versions, ...
It turned out the user didn't have a "default Issue priority" set in his Redmine administration panel.
A good solution here is for REST API to provide a list of existing priorities with IDs so that remote clients can use them. This is requested in #8596.
A minor easy fix would be to improve the error message: change it from
Priority can't be blank
Priority can't be blank. No default priority is set in the Redmine server settings. please use menu "Administration -> Enumerations -> Issue Priorities" to set the default priority.
Users will really appreciate nice error messages!
Etienne, I hope you don't mind if I assign this to you?
