Currently the API only returns the numeric category_id for an issue. Is there any way to get the list of categories for a project in order to get their names and use those instead of the numeric ids?

    yes, there is a way.
    some code in "Issue.php" probably needs to be changed - just like a few lines of code need to be added in order to get "labels" out from an "issue" API call.

    Addendum: so are you looking for the text category names available of a specify project or the text category name the issue is assigned to?
