#2723: Popular plugins feed doesn't validate
 Reporter:  iandunn           |      Owner:
     Type:  defect            |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal            |  Milestone:
Component:  Plugin Directory  |   Keywords:
 The popular plugins feed (which is fetched by the News dashboard widget in
 Core) is outputting invalid. Because of that, the News widget isn't
 showing the plugins.

 `var_dump( fetch_feed(
 'https://wordpress.org/plugins/browse/popular/feed/' ) ):`

   public 'errors' =>
     array (size=1)
       'simplepie-error' =>
         array (size=1)
           0 => string 'This XML document is invalid, likely due to invalid
 characters. XML error: Undeclared entity error at line 11, column 24'
   public 'error_data' =>
     array (size=0)

 I'm guessing this broke with the launch of the new directory.
