I think the two bugs in that puppycrawl code should get
fixed.  Then there will be no problems at all.

 -  It's completely bogus to turn arbitrary warnings
    into fatal errors as a default policy.

 -  And it's equally bogus to call an XML parser with
    borked inputs, expecting it guess correctly about
    the base URI to use when resolving.

The problem with not emitting warnings in case of borked
inputs is that otherwise consequent problems get extremely
tough to find.  Folk have literally spent months trying
to track down the root causes here, since by the time the
problems pops up, URI mis-resolution is ancient history.
(You may "know" how it's supposed to resolve, and ensure
the file is there...)
