             Summary: Allow newline characters when decoding base64 strings in 
stout
                 Key: MESOS-8569
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MESOS-8569
             Project: Mesos
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: stout
            Reporter: Kapil Arya


Current implementation of `stout::base64::decode` errors out on encountering a 
newline character ("\n" or "\r\n") which is correct wrt 
[RFC4668#section-3.3|https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4648#section-3.3]. However, 
most implementations insert a newline to delimit encoded string and ignore 
(instead of erroring out) the newline character while decoding the string. 
Since stout facilities are used by third-party modules to encode/decode base64 
data, it is desirable to allow decoding of newline-delimited data.
