  I'm trying to get started with making the latest clone from the git repository and I get the following error:

xsl:attribute: The attribute name 'xmlns' is not allowed.

The construct it's complaining about is
    12    <xsl:template match="Benchmark">
    13      <xsl:copy>
    14        <xsl:attribute name="xmlns">
    15          <xsl:text>http://checklists.nist.gov/xccdf/1.1</xsl:text>
    16        </xsl:attribute>
    17        <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()" />
    18      </xsl:copy>
    19    </xsl:template>
That is a valid (use of) attribute.

I can't produce this error using current repo on Ubuntu 12.10 and xsltproc 1.1.26-14. Ditto using <oXygen/> XML Editor 14.1 and its inbuilt xsltproc.
