In Activity views, changesets titles can be multiline while they should not
|Assignee:||Jean-Philippe Lang||% Done:|
This concerns both HTML view and Atom feed.Are concerned entries for repository changeset whose content is
- first line is short
I can't find an example in Redmine.org development Activity timeline, because Jean-Philippe usualy does not commit with such a changelog, so here is a example :
This commit fixes : - #13 - #34
In this case, truncate would return a truncated string, no matter if it contains newlines. This multilines string end up raw, in XML <entry><title> </title> section of the feed, and in the <a href="/repositories/revision/..."> section of the Html activity page. While the later seem to be properly rendered by web engines, the former makes many feedreaders choke and display erroneous data, mixing fields. I'm not sure what the RFC says about it, but I'm sure most newsreaders are not designed to handle multilines titles.
Attached patch is one working solution and works on my instance. It uses a helper, very similar to truncate, but ensuring truncated string is NOT multiline. Feel free to comment.

Jean-Philippe, this would fix the problem equally well, it is only a matter of taste. Mine is that a space is a char already used very often, so I find it hard to guess which spaces are genuine and which are not. How about " \ " or " / " or " ^ " or " - " or " > " ?
In any case, that will be a matter of taste and fix the problem, so just pick up the one you prefer. Ask for another patch if you want.
