Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 21665
mail with '+' doesn't seem to work...
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:06 EDT
I tried registrering as "email@example.com" and entered my
bug report, and everything looked fine but when I pressed "commit" it
complained that "firstname.lastname@example.org" wasn't a registrered user.
Registrering as "email@example.com" instead worked...
I didn't have any problems registering as firstname.lastname@example.org...
I do have problems however, with some URLs in bugzilla that don't encode '+'
properly (as %2B).
An example of this is on my 'Front page', where the link for bugs assigned to me is:
The + in the url is interpreted (correctly) as a space, so it says it can't find
any user with my name. Proper url encoding should fix this.
Red Hat's current Bugzilla version is 2.18. I am moving all older open bugs to
this version. Any bugs against the older versions will need to be verified that
they are still bugs. This will help me also to sort them better.
I haven't tried to verify the original poster's bug, but the bug I mentioned in
comment #1 is still there.
Should be fixed now. The URL in the 2nd comment will need to be recreated though
from the advanced query page to take advantage of the fix.
