Same again as #58446, #59098, #59666...

Several endpoints in the API return invalid XML, the issue is always the same: weird XML prolog and extra elements in the middle of the document; sometimes just one more time, sometimes more, e.g. one in Authentication, three in Caching:

 <ca xlink:href="/rest/c/Authentication">Authentication</ca>
 <s>PAM integration</s>
 <d>This extension provides PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules) integration. PAM is a system of libraries that handle the authentication tasks of applications and services. The library provides a stable API for applications to defer to for authentication tasks.</d>
 <r xlink:href="/rest/r/pam"/>
</p><?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<a xmlns=""
    xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xlink=""     xsi:schemaLocation="">

The test script below outputs the number of XML prologs for each category that has more than one in the XML.

Test script:
for f in $(curl | grep -o 'c xlink:href="[^"]*' | cut -d'"' -f2 | sed 's/info.xml/packagesinfo.xml/' | sed s#^#; do { echo -n "$f: "; curl --silent $f | grep '<?xml' | wc -l; } | grep -v 1; done

Actual result:
--------------        2        4        2        2        2        3        3        2        2        2        2        2

It seems to me that this code[1] didn't work as hoped.

Ugh, XML assembled via string concatenation? No wonder this is buggy.

Since bug #59098 is still open, I'm closing this as duplicate.
