There appears to be an Atlassian Answers answer that says that the current REST API's can't set the start date for a version that they create, but I can't find a definitive answer in the JIRA/Greenhopper documentation.
Is this still the case, and where would I find that info?
I guess it is still the same. You can refer the REST Api doc of greenhopper in the below link.
