Pivotal Tracker Service breaks with some special characters in commit message (BB-4471)

I have confirmed that Pivotal Tracker does not get updated when the TortoiseGit "Add Signed-off-by" button is used or when an Ampersand (&) is in the comment area.

Removing both of these from the commit and pushing again will immediately update Pivotal Tracker.

    Pivotal Tracker integration is a BitBucket service right? I thought this was a good place to report this issue. Is there a better place to report this?

    This is also true for the string that identifies the "Author" of the commit. If that string contains an ampersand (possibly other special characters as well) then the pivotal tracker post-receive hook will fail. And that is very sad.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
