Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-11696) /query page generates http link that loads incorrectly-encoded url
Date Tue, 16 Jan 2018 17:36:00 GMT


Aditya Srinivasan commented on SOLR-11696:

I saw the "easy fix" label here and thought I'd work on this. Would the owners mind assigning
this to me? It would be my first PR/fix and I'd appreciate guidance in executing this as well!
