Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-1325:

Hi Konstantin,

Good release practices, and Apache policy, says we cannot and will not re-issue 
releases to include patches.  In order to do that there would need to be a 
point release instead.  This change will go out as part of the 2.6 release in 

I would like to further understand how exactly this entity is presenting into 
the XML.  If you can obtain the actual XML document (redact sensitive content, 
of course, but preserve formatting etc), I would greatly appreciate it. If it 
turns out that the problem is with the xerces parser, I can create a ticket 
against that.  I suspect, however, that a ticket really should be created 
against SharePoint, although I also suspect they will be completely unwilling 
to fix a deprecated feature like this.
