This pull requests fixes two issues with regards to unexpected captcha identifier sent in API call responses. For clarity, I separated the fix for both issues into two commits.

Issue 1: When a submission call succeeds, the server may attach an unexpected captcha identifier to the response.

The reason why this happens is because c.errors contains all errors detected by Validators (many of which are ignored by the controller methods). On the other hand, form.has_error() returns true if there exist errors that were explicitly set in controller methods with has_errors(...) and set_error(...).

For example, when a link submission succeeds, c.errors contains the following values:

  • ('NO_TEXT', 'extension')
  • ('NO_TEXT', 'text')

while form.has_error() returns False.

Issue 2: When a submission call fails for a user that doesn't need captcha, the server always attach an unexpected captcha identifier.

The change avoids sending captcha iden for failed API calls by users that don't need it.
