Christian,

What if people are relying on those error messages to do different things? Possibly they already have normalization code they expect to come into play in this situation, which is different than yours
.
On the other hand, having to do this seems annoying, so as someone writing new code I'd consider your proposed patch a feature, rather than a bugfix.


My two cents,

Hi,

the standard name chooser makes sure that the character '+', '@' are not used in the beginning of a name and '/' is never used.

When asking the name chooser to choose a name for me, I thought it would normalize those characters away, giving me a usable name.

Reading the interface, there is a distiction between checking a name (and giving an error) and choosing a name (create one, maybe with a given name to start from) that is valid.

I'd consider this to be a bug and change the name chooser accordingly.

What do people think?
