Bug report #9595
Encode ampersands in the xml repo output
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No|
If there is an ampersand in the author_name tag (or any other except the description), it's passed to the xml output without any encoding, what leads to a corrupted xml. I've just made a fast workaround in the plugin installer by replacing all "& " with "& " in the downloaded xml, however, a similar replace on the server side would prevent from publishing corrupted XMLs at all.
