OpenVAS Change Request #6: Remove support of old XML report format

Status: Voted +2. Implemented with SVN-884. Released with OpenVAS-Client 1.0.4.


To reduce code base.

To prevent people from using a unsupported feature.


Survey whether anyone needs this format on openvas-devel mailing list.


This feature was marked as deprecated already in the old Nessus times.

A successor XML format exists.

The DTD (nbe.dtd) for this format does not exist anyway (or never has been made readily available).

Apart from this, there seem to be no OpenVAS users that use the feature anymore (survey does not result a single answer).
