Description Toralf Förster gentoo-dev 2004-07-06 01:42:46 UTC
At I read about the new gcc-3.4.1 :

Description: The GNU Compiler Collection. Includes C/C++, java compilers, pie and ssp extentions

*gcc-3.4.1 (05 Jul 2004)

05 Jul 2004; Travis Tilley <>
+files/3.4.1/gcc-3.4.1-gentoo-branding.patch, +gcc-3.4.1.ebuild:
new version. please see for more

The problem is, that the url is not blue , but the sign '#' in #3.4.1. is blue and clickable

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Expected Results:  
Strings like #12345 should be marked as url only if there is a space in front 
of '#' isn't it ?

Regex needs to check for whitespace in front of '#' instead of just '#'.

This happens so rarely.  I think it's fixed (in CVS, not on the site).  If you see it happen again, let me know so I bring in the fix and test it.
