When running catkin_make I get an error like the following:

Install space: /home/ivaughn/workspace_ws/install
The manifest contains invalid XML:
not well-formed (invalid token): line 1, column 19

Which presumably implies one of the package.xml files is all fouled up. The probability someone fouled up a close tag is high, but this workspace has a dozen or so packages. Any way to increase catkin's verbosity to find out which one?

I'm sure there will be other issues where increasing catkin's verbosity will help as well.

Thanks in advance!

Not answering your question but if it is not a "simple closing tag" you might be running into this problem:

Oh interesting.

After digging through all the package.xml files I did resolve that specific build bug-- nothing that interesting.
