Referring to [http://wiki.flightgear.org/index.php?title=Hackathon_Proposal:_CompositeViewer_and_Canvas&oldid=129050] Why is this needed ? --[[User:Hooray|Hooray]] ([[User talk:Hooray|talk]]) 13:53, 16 November 2020 (EST)

: Wow, that's stretching my memory.  I guess you mean the <code>/~</code> needed at the end of SourceForge branches.  I think that I was going to implement the proper URL construction with <code>/~</code>, but the logic required evaded me and I never completed it.  The problem is documented in {{tl|repo link}}, specifically in the parameter help description.  E.g.:
 +
 +
: <q>For SourceForge git repositories, if the character <code>/</code> is present in the branch name, the text <code>/~</code> must be appended to the branch.</q>

: I'm not sure if MediaWiki allows us to detect if a certain character is present in a template parameter value.  Again from distant memory, I think I asked for an extension to be installed to enable this to be implemented, but it never was.  This is not a simple problem!  Hence I took the shortcut of using the above text in the documentation.

:: thank you for clarifying, I thought I was misusing/misunderstanding the template, so just wondering. Thanks again, the workaround will do for now. --[[User:Hooray|Hooray]] ([[User talk:Hooray|talk]]) 17:12, 16 November 2020 (EST)
