[kmymoney] [Bug 391932] Google source of stock quotes quit

I'm not sure how much a wiki would reduce traffic since many people
might still come here and end up getting a link to the wiki rather
than the specific fix. I guess those of us that are not devs could
lend a hand with easy questions like this.

I would go one step further when things settle down and the devs have
a chance to add features. How about having KMM retrieve the settings
for some or all of the sources for quotes remotely so that changes
only have to be entered on the KMM server once and they propagate to
the clients automatically. This may require major code changes and
needs to be carefully thought out to prevent hackers from taking
advantage of it. Or maybe a plugin that gets updated without having to
upgrade the entire program. I know that this is all happening when the
devs have more important things to do (like help me get KF5 running!).

I agree the situation has gotten pretty pathetic (to be clear, not
KMM's fault) but maybe the Yahoo problem is a one time Verizon caused
problem and this will settle down now. When a LibreOffice extension I
was using to get quotes from Yahoo stopped working I switched to
Google quotes and they died at the same time that the KMM Google fixed
died. This is affecting more than KMM.

Food for thought.
