Description

Is it possible to get rid of the '<' and '>' around the URL at the
end of the issue tracker message ? It just makes cutting and pasting
into a browser easier.

Those two characters are needed by some eMail apps to make them
recognize URLs across line breaks correctly. Apple Mail is an example.

On the other hand we'd have to generate a *lot* of bugs before that line
gets long enough to need any line-breaking.

#3 Updated by corecode about 8 years ago

To quote RFC2396 - Uniform Resource Identifiers (URI): Generic Syntax:

The angle-bracket "<" and ">" and double-quote (") characters are
excluded because they are often used as the delimiters around URI in
text documents and protocol fields.
[...]
delims = "<" | ">" | "#" | "%" | <">

I'd like to keep it that way. Andy Hauser suggested to use cutchars for X:

URxvt*cutchars: \ `"'(),;<=>[]{|}
