Re: [p2-dev] URL's with spaces

Hi Thomas,

This results from an over-use of the questionable URIUtil.fromString(String) method in p2. I tried to push for an easy fix for this once - by only escaping if the URL contains invalid characters - but this fix was rejected [1]

So there is only the hard fix left: find all references to URIUtil.fromString in the p2 code, and replace them with a call to a method which doesn't break valid URLs... Hopefully someone will do this someday...
