Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 814018
Liferea improperly copies URLs with spaces
Last modified: 2013-06-16 01:34:45 EDT
Description of problem:
When copying a URL from a feed entry, Liferea replaces "%20" with "+".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find a feed entry with a URL that contains a space
2. Copy the URL
3. Paste elsewhere
Spaces are replaced with "+"
Spaces should remain "%20"
I can confirm in 1.8.5 but it seems upstreams intentional behavior.
This bug is probably not the place to have a '+' vs '%20' debate.
> Find a feed entry with a URL that contains a space
Just 1 of ~40000 items in my db had spaces in it. From an cached no-longer-online entry. Some working examples would be nice.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 16 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 16. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '16'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 16's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 16 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" and open it against that version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
