Package: olive
Version: 1.3-4
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I'm using Liferea as my primary feedreader and wanted to try out olive.

According to the man page I can pass an OPML file as parameter, but when
trying to import the OPML feed list from Liferea 1.6 or 1.8, olive just
says "0 of 0 feeds imported", but doesn't tell why it thinks that there
are no feeds in these OPML files:

$ ls -lh .liferea_1.*/feedlist.opml
-rw------- 1 abe abe 462K Nov 14  2011 .liferea_1.6/feedlist.opml
-rw------- 1 abe abe 371K Feb  8 00:21 .liferea_1.8/feedlist.opml
$ head -1 .liferea_1.*/feedlist.opml
==> .liferea_1.6/feedlist.opml <==
<?xml version="1.0"?>

==> .liferea_1.8/feedlist.opml <==
<?xml version="1.0"?>
$ olive .liferea_1.6/feedlist.opml
Beginning OPML import.
0 of 0 feeds imported
$ olive .liferea_1.8/feedlist.opml
Beginning OPML import.
0 of 0 feeds imported

I'd expect that it either find the several hundred feeds in these OPML
files or tells me (at least) that it can't parse it or why else it
thinks there are no feeds to be found in these files.

In case olive only supports some specific OPML versions or variants, the
man page should mention that, too.
