Subject [classlib][security] Wildcard subjectAltName dNSName entries throw IOException (HARMONY-6248)
Date Sat, 27 Jun 2009 21:50:00 GMT
Please take a look at the conversation Ian and I have been having in
HARMONY-6248.

Unless anyone objects I'm inclined to agree with Ian and modify Harmony
to accept DNSNames that start with a digit, unlike the RI which throws
an exception.

Comments welcome.
