Cc: Trac Release: 1.2

Description (last modified by Ryan J Ollos)


If i try to create a user account and the account isn't compatible with the regexp policy, an error message is shown. In this error message the string formatting field %s is displayed, not the username who should be created.

Providing the actual error message would be useful.

This appears to be an error in [12384/accountmanagerplugin/trunk/acct_mgr/]. The message args are stored in msg_args, but nothing is done with them. I'm unsure why a noop translation marker needs to be used in this case. The following patch might be sufficient:

  • acct_mgr/

    313313            req.args.get('username', '').strip())
    314314        if req.path_info != '/prefs' and self.username_regexp != '' and \
    315315                not re.match(self.username_regexp.strip(), username):
    316             raise RegistrationError(N_(
    317                 "Username %s doesn't match local naming policy."),
    318                 tag.b(username)
    319             )
     316            raise RegistrationError(tag_(
     317                "Username %(username)s doesn't match local naming policy.",
     318                username=tag.b(username)
     319            ))
    321321        email = req.args.get('email', '').strip()
    322322        if self.env.is_enabled(EmailCheck) and \

Similar changes likely need to be made elsewhere in the module.

Since [16680], _("revoked") and _('pending') are passed to set_user_attribute(). Those localized revoked and pending would be stored in session_attribute.value column.

I consider we should localize the values when displaying on browser and console rather than storing localized values.
