Description Damian Jansen 2013-06-12 05:20:51 UTC
Description of problem:
Help / error dialog does not indicate the use of period (".")

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://(zanata-host)/zanata/version-group/list
2. Click Create Group
3. Enter a group ID of My\Group
4. Error shows "must start and end with letter or number, and contain only letters, numbers, underscores and hyphens."
5. Enter a group ID of My.Group
6. Add a group name, press Create

Actual results:
Group is created.

Expected results:
According to help / error bubble, . is not an acceptable character, so either the help is inaccurate or the check is flawed.

Additional info:

Comment 1 Damian Jansen 2013-06-17 01:32:50 UTC
User can also use { and }
The pattern in SlugValidator.java reads

I'm expecting this is correct, i.e. some thought has gone into adding the {.}
These characters do not appear to have any adverse effects on creating a group.
