xmldiff #3743 xmldiff-xmlrev: doesn't work with namespaces [open]
The program description says this problem will compare XML files.
However, namespaces are a standard part of XML files, and xmlrev seems to complain loudly if it sees an valid XML file with ':' in the name of an element.
See debian bug report for example
