Group name validation doesn't allow UTF-8 characters

(Glamdring) #1

I’m trying to create a group with a name in cyrillic script and the error message is "that “only letters, digits and underscore” is allowed. My guess is there’s an a-zA-Z regex, which doesn’t cover UTF-8. So please have in mind that latin script isn’t the only one in the world when doing validation.

Groupnames and usernames are ASCII, like Twitter. This is an intentional design decision.

The “full name” for the group or user can be 110% unicode.
