WordPress XML export contains data for all authors

Reported by: khromov's profile khromov Owned by:

When running a WordPress XML export (Tools > Export), the wxr_authors_list(); function is called to output a list of authors at the top of the exported document.

This happens regardless of filters you have specified.

Say that you are exporting data for a single user only, I don't see why we need the XML to include login names and email addresses for all other users on the blog.

I don't have a patch as of yet, wanted to see if this is "working as intended" first, but I would be happy to submit a patch that limits the authors list depending on the export filter specified.

The use case for this is that we want users on our site to be able to export their own data only. This can be done via available filters but we can't stop wxr_authors_list(); from outputting all the author email addresses on the site in the export.
