Issue #6374 wontfix

Links to users by using @username confused with emails (BB-7542)

Gunnar Sigurdsson
created an issue


I just wanted to point out that links to the user jhu seem to be popping up around my repository where my email shows up (since my email is @jhu.edu). It seems like a easy thing to fix.

Thank you!

    Hi Gunnar,

    Thanks for reporting. I've added this to our backlog and look into it.

    Just a quick question, when you type in your email do you include the local part i.e. example@jhu.edu or do you just type out the domain?

    Cheers, Brian

    It appears that my email reply did not find its way here. I will paste it here to be safe:


    I noticed this when I replied to an issue via email and ended up with:

    (Reply via gun...Jeroen Schmit.edu):

    So it should have been gunnar@jhu.edu, but it was abbreviated and replaced Jeroen Schmit with Jeroen Schmit.

    Regards, Gunnar Atli

    Hi Gunnar,

    We look at . as a sentence ending. That is why we are rendering the invalid email as a user on the site.

    If we change this then other places where you follow a username with . will not be rendered.
