Subject Re: Possible bug in seeds list (web connector)
Date Thu, 15 Mar 2012 17:55:21 GMT
But this makes sense, actually.  The url "" does not
actually match the regexp "*", so it is ditched.

The proposal to silently modify the seed according to some criteria
makes me nervous.  I'd much rather the UI caught and complained about
seeds that were non-conforming than have something silent happen under
the covers.
