Package: qa.debian.org
Severity: normal

The PTS fails to quote get parameters when package names are inserted
into links. I encountered this problem when I followed the link to the
BTS on a package having several plus signs in its name (libxml++2.6).
Such special characters which have a special meaning in get should be
onverted to their hexadecimal value and passed with the percent sign
before them. Otherwise it is impossible for the linked script to receive
the name correctly. If I remember it correctly, neither the equals sign
or the ampersand are valid in package names, so probably this only
occurs with the plus sign.

In this case the correct quoting would be: libxml%2b%2b2.6

Kind regards,
Philipp Kern

I applied it, it worked fine. Thanks. Thus I'm closing this bug.

Would you be interested to help more regularly with the PTS ?
