How do I get the current sprint?

I'm hitting the REST api at

/rest/greenhopper/1.0/sprintquery/{project}

and it's returning all sprints, including old sprints.  How do I get it to return just the active sprint?  I've tried using ?includeHistoricSprints=false but it seems to ignore that.

Agree with Nic, sprints belongs to boards. You could use this query /rest/agile/1.0/board/{boardId}/sprint?state=active

I don't think you can - sprints belong to boards, not projects, so the question "what is the active sprint in this project?" could have many valid answers.

I'm having similar issues in finding out which is the 'current' sprint that the task is in. I totally get that the sprint is within a board (and therefore it could be open within many sprints on many boards) - but that also says that the Sprint column on the Issues Export is as much use as a chocolate teapot, because it doesn't tell you anything about the board that the sprint belongs to!

Can you think of any way I can see which is the sprint (or sprints) that the task is currently in (as opposed to the ones that it was in, but isn't any more because it's been moved on)?
