Numerical characters are stripped from diffusion Git repository name in the URI


Observed Behavior:
When creating a repository with numbers in the name, these numbers are stripped from the name when the default URLs are created.

When performing a git clone of a diffusion repository, numbers will be stripped from the repository name, allowing invalid URLs to clone a repository.

Expected Behavior:
Although Diffusion does not allow numbers in the callsign, they are allowed in the repository name and repository short name.
Links to a repository with numerical characters in the name should be included and correctly parsed.

Reproduction Steps:

  1. Create a new empty git repository:
    Go to Diffusion
    Click “Create Repository”
    Fill in the details:
    Name: abc123def Callsign: GHI
    Click “Create Repository”

  2. Check the default URIs
    Click “URIs”
    They will be something like ssh://
    note: the numbers in the repository name have been stripped from the URI

  3. Activate the repository
    Click “Basics”
    Click “Actions” > “Activate Repository”

  4. Insert numbers when cloning the repository
    git clone ssh://
    note: the command will work, even though invalid numbers have been added to the URI



The last item - using a different name after the callsign - is expected, we ignore that part and only include it so that the directory name when cloning isn’t ugly.

We do some stripping on the short name to make sure it’s a valid uri and filename, but I think we should allow digits.




Fantastic, thanks very much!
And thanks for the explanation on the last point, I didn’t realise that.
