Description Aleksey Nogin 1998-11-19 18:44:25 EST
Many RHCN packages have + in their names: libg++-libc5,
squid+icmp, mpi2c++ ... There are several problems with how
RHCN handles + in package names.

1) http://developer.redhat.com/rhcn/packagelist.php3 and
http://developer.redhat.com/rhcn/memberinfo.php3 do not
change + into %2b when linking to

2) Even when %2b is used , packageinfo.php3 still transforms
it into " " and reports that package is not uploaded.
Comment 1 Aleksey Nogin 1998-11-19 18:53:59 EST
As you could see in the "View Bug Activity" for this bug, bugzilla's
process_bug.cgi also has problems with interpreting special characters
in "URL" and "Summary" fields (it was the one that changes "+" into
" " in the Summary field, I did not touch it...
Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 1998-12-04 20:31:59 EST
New packageinfo.php3 now understands %2b right, but does not
understand + .
And both packagelist.php3 and memberinfo.php3 generate links with "+"
not with "%2b"
Comment 3 Aleksey Nogin 1998-12-04 20:32:59 EST
And Bugzilla still does not know how to deal with "+" in URL and
Summary fields.
Comment 4 Preston Brown 1999-03-29 16:08:59 EST
Andrew, Alex: can we have a status report on this bug please?
Comment 5 Aleksey Nogin 1999-06-07 22:36:59 EDT
I wanted to remind you that the problem still exists
Comment 6 David Lawrence 1999-11-17 11:12:59 EST
This problem is being deferred until the new RHCN becomes operational.
