Will subversion accept usernames such as firstname.lastname@domain.com?

We are using svn+ssh with public key authentication as per the official svn guide's ssh tips and tricks section.

Basically, we pass svnserve with the --tunnel-user={username} command, will subversion be OK with that username having @ and . in it?

Thanks.

I haven't tried, but it should work. The only tricky place is where you want to include username in SVN URL. Standard URL-escaping rules would require %40 instead of @:

svn+ssh:user%40emailhost@svnhost

Would this also apply to TortoiseSVN? –  Warlax Mar 21 '10 at 2:26
