Subject [jira] Created: (MANTTASKS-142) Default remote repository id not safe
Date Wed, 04 Mar 2009 09:24:13 GMT
Default remote repository id not safe

                 Key: MANTTASKS-142
             Project: Maven 2.x Ant Tasks
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: dependencies task
    Affects Versions: 2.0.9
            Reporter: Benjamin Bentmann
            Priority: Minor

The default id for a remote repository is just the repo URL. However, a URL typically contains
all kind of characters that are not safe for usage in local file paths. E.g. the colon (:)
from the URL scheme will just blow up on Windows. The slashes from the URL also cause troubles
for a path that is meant to be a simple file name instead of a directory spec.

Better choices for the default repo id could be the host name only or just some hex-encoded
MD5-digest of the URL.
