Revisor produces corrupt comps.xml in iso

I have almost got revisor working how I would expect, however the final ISO contains a corrupt comps.xml.

Does anyone have any advice on how the comps.xml file is created with revisor so I can troubleshoot it?

Has anyone seen this type of behaviour before?

The creating repo data stage takes longer than expected. A small cutting from the comp.xml found in the finished ISO below. Total trashed!

Does anyone know which packages are used to create the comps.xml during the ceation of an ISO?

I have one system that is working well but every system I build with the method I have produces the same corrupt comps.xml results.

I suspect it is the wway i am installing revisor so will check my repos to see where i am pulling revisor in from and its depenacies.

I've personally have never been able to get revisor to work properly, it's a real piece if you ask me, I figured it would improve over time but it somehow manages to fail in a different way every time I try it.

As far as how it does what it does, it's open source so you can always look at the code.

Or you might consider contacting someone at the Fedora Unity Project, I *think* they may be using revisor to do their re-spins.
