What to do with XML update?
I received a notification from HP today about an XML update. When I clicked the
download button on the HP Support Center site, it only linked me to the XML script. What am I supposed to do with this and what is it for?

RE: What to do with XML update?
Nothing to do with it, and these alerts are news to me...

If you look at it, you'll notice it just is a simple file that represents the current structure on the ftp. When using HTTP only for updates, you can't "browse" a directory like one might with FTP. Since FTP is blocked or problematic for some people, a small file that represents what files are there in order to support checking for updates is needed.
