Description Church of emacs 2008-05-15 16:45:22 UTC
If go to
your URL is typically converted to

If copy&paste the last part and try to link to [[Time_%28disambiguation%29]] on a page, this works, but if you try it in an edit summary, the history shows no link, just the plain text "Time_%28disambiguation%29".
This is a problem with all edit summaries that contain character entity references like %28 (so this problem is present also with umlaute and other language specific characters). (Note: this bug might be related to [[Bug:8996]])
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2008-05-22 17:28:20 UTC
Linker::formatLinksInCommentCallback() needs to be tweaked to use the 'check for %s and do urldecode() if needed' hack that the parser uses... shouldn't be hard.
Comment 2 Ilmari Karonen 2008-05-22 20:02:43 UTC
Fixed in r35197.
