Description of problem:
Consider XCCDF document without 'Profile' element.

2. # oscap xccdf eval --results /tmp/invalid-output.xml first_xccdf.xml
Actual results:
1 1871 In file '/tmp/invalid-output.xml' on line 40: Element '{}TestResult': Missing child element(s). Expected is one of ( {}rule-result, {}score ).
XCCDF Results are NOT exported correctly.

Expected results:

Additional info:
According to Martin, this has been fixed upstream.

Comment 1 Šimon Lukašík 2012-05-28 17:10:08 UTC
This, together with bug 825839 might cause some headache to Spacewalk users.

Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 08:09:42 UTC
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 3 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-11 01:45:16 UTC
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.

Comment 5 Peter Vrabec 2012-12-11 11:18:17 UTC
$ ./ .libs/oscap xccdf eval --results /tmp/invalid-output.xml ~/first_xccdf.xml
Title   Verify All Account Password Hashes are Shadowed
Rule    no_hashes_outside_shadow
Ident   CCE-14300-8
Result  pass

$ ./ .libs/oscap xccdf  validate /tmp/invalid-output.xml

It works for me with openscap 0.9.2.
