Description jeremyb 2007-08-09 10:17:03 UTC
There are multiple users whose names start with '''Adrian '''.  Searching for Adrian_, Adrian+, or Adrian%20 produces no results.  
compare:
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=allusers&aulimit=1&auprop=groups|editcount&auprefix=Adrian
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=allusers&aulimit=1&auprop=groups|editcount&auprefix=Adrian%20
The result of the second query should be the query-continue value returned from the first. (at least at the moment.  not sure if anything has precedence over a space)

This specific case would have been fixed in r24870.
Comment 2 Rob Church 2007-08-22 05:50:35 UTC
"This specific case" is misleading; the above should have read:

Username normalisation for "list=allusers" was fixed in r24870. There might be other examples of poor username handling throughout the API.

If that is the case, those issues should be filed separately. Closing as FIXED, as this particular issue was fixed in r24870.
