Bug Description

In the past, it was possible to select a public server in several dialogs (registering a new account, installation wizard, rooms,...) by clicking on the dropdown arrow. The menu was populated with servers from the XML file on

Maybe it became broken because the URL of the XML file had been changed?

when I grep the whole sources for services-full.xml then I don't find anything?

svn revision #2812 fixes the problem,

from the changelog:
fix for bug #555902, update the URL used to retrieve the
list of public servers in jabber/Jabber.tcl, and use package
xml instead of qdxml to parse the xml file.

this must have been broken within qdxml since a longer time... svn log tells me the last change to it was done by matben in summer 2007

I just tested with older versions of Coccinella that worked for sure in the past and I can confirm they are also broken. Maybe it got broken because the content of the XML file changed? It would be better in the end to improve qdxml, because Coccinella likely will be faster with qdxml:
