             Summary: TelephoneNumberSyntaxChecker should allow hash (#), star (*), pause
(,) and wait (;)
                 Key: DIRSERVER-1755
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1755
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: schema-plugin
            Reporter: Warren Janssens


Receiving systems often use the # and * tones for menu navigation.
Calling systems use , and ; for pausing and waiting.  The semicolon is especially useful for
dealing with extensions.

I would say these 4 symbols are more useful than hyphen and parenthesis since they are used
for formatting only.

Almost every phone ever made has # and * keys.
Almost every modem and cellphone ever made supports , for pause and ; for wait.

Although I didn't verify this, the fax number validator likely has the same problem.

Since E.123 and X.520 are somewhat vague on the subject, I think taking a pragmatic approach
and allowing these symbols that are in common use to be allowed.
