Feedback on Case: 12969: 'Prevent VIPB from creating package names with invalid characters'

Recommended Posts

Firstly, congrats on the 2011.0.1 release.


I have some feedback on Case 12969 which does not allow e.g. a period in the Company Name and overrides it to an underscore.


E.g. OpenG.org => OpenG_org




In the release notes, it says that this is to prevent VIPM from creating package names with hyphens and periods.

However, adding a period to the Package Name is allowed (e.g. this could affect the rebuilding of legacy packages - so that makes sense).




In summary, I am suggesting is that the Company Name should allow periods however, it should override the hyphen in the suggested Package Name (if that is where the issue is).
