Description of problem:
The current web-whois for .tg doesn't work (whois nic.tg), just many errors
and stuff, because the wrong page is used. I tried to get something working,
but I'm failing at a point. Maybe you've got an idea, what I'm doing wrong?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Everytime, whois query fails.

Actual and expected results:
Currently we have:

--- snipp ---
"www\\.nic\\.tg" {
        http = "true";
        http-method = "GET";
        http-action = "/moteur/info_dom.php";
        form-element = "domaine";
--- snapp ---

Following works for me, but queries ALWAYS for nic.tg and I'm unable to get
some variable into...the request has to be POST otherwise it won't work, and
the .tg is a separate field, so the tosearch needs to be just the domain name
without the top level domain.

--- snipp ---
"www\\.nic\\.tg" {
        http = "true";
        http-method = "POST";
        http-action = "/nictg/indexplus.php?pg=verifdom&op=whois";
        form-element = "Submit";
        form-extra = "tosearch=nic&typedom=.tg"; # All but last domain segment
--- snapp ---

Any ideas? I tried to replace "nic" by "${+2}", but that doesn't work somehow
in form-extra as it seems...

Additional info:
Please try to get this fix upstream - upstream is unluckily always very very
unresponsive to me.

Okay, I found my mistake. The new block is the following...please use it.

--- snipp ---
"www\\.nic\\.tg" {
        http = "true";
        http-method = "POST";
        http-action = "/nictg/indexplus.php?pg=verifdom&op=whois";
        query-format = "tosearch=${+2}&typedom=.tg";
--- snapp ---

Now "whois nic.tg" and "whois cafe.tg" are e.g. working examples...
