Subject [jira] [Commented] (ROL-2002) https:// URLs not being processed correctly in the comment URL field
Date Mon, 09 Jun 2014 09:25:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ROL-2002?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14021778#comment-14021778

Glen Mazza commented on ROL-2002:
---------------------------------

Yes and no.  We check that the entered email is syntatically valid but don't test it first
by sending an email to what the user types in.

Likewise, we may wish to do a mild, imperfect test that the URL is syntatically valid (does
it have at least one dot in it?  If it has a scheme, does it start with http:// or https://)
 but we should not IMO automatically be hitting whatever URL the reader types in to test to
see if the URL works.  This way, if the blog commenter decides to type in an Al-Qaeda, porn,
or drug trafficking website URL the blogger's server will not be on record of having accessed
it.  Also, it's entirely possible the commenter's entered URL may be temporarily down or a
future URL that the commenter plans to activate next week.

example:  http://https://web-gmazza.rhcloud.com/blog
