Description

I attempted to create a project with the name "www.mywebsite.com" but it refuses to allow that project name.

Actions #1

Dots are not allowed. Maybe they should be...

Actions #2

Updated by Damien McKenna over 17 years ago

The instructions on the project creator needs to either say it
or the limits should
be removed. I personally don't see any reason to restrict it
from common
characters, like periods, as they are often used to name projects,
e.g. my
example of using a website domain name as the project name.

Actions #3

well, the validator is in app/models/project.rb:

validates_format_of :name, :with => /^[\w\s\'\-]*$/i

I can't see any reason why this restriction is there - maybe
for regexp purposes?

identifier

Fixed in r949.
Project name can now contain any character.
