First, Android uses custom wrapper around Git; clearly this is an
error reported by this wrapper as Git itself does not use XML anywhere
to my knowledge. Hence you should ask for support on gerrit (or
whatever it is named) on resources concerned with supporting that

On the other hand, at the bottom of the stack there's an Expat error;
Expat is an XML parser, and "not well-formed" most probably means that
you botched that XML config while editing it so its XML became, well,
not well-formed (pun intended).
