- is a character that needs to be escaped in URLs. Similar to JENINS-1768 and
JENKINS-2788we get broken links to test results (both normal links and the inline ajax links) where the part after the # is treated by the browser as the target causing the links to be 404.
If we fix the URL by replacing the # with the url escaped %23 it works correctly.
This is a problem to us because it's best practice to use # in test names in Ruby as described in this tutorial: http://eggsonbread.com/2010/03/28/my-rspec-best-practices-and-tips/
After some digging I found hudson.tasks.test.TestObject.safe(String s) which was modified in the previous bug that now handles "/" "\" and ":", but not #.
Can provide more details and produce test cases as needed.
