I don't quite see how this works with editing? Specifically, if someone puts a URL in the text of the description box, when they save, does it become a link? When they edit it again, do they see <a= ...> or does it de-linkify it?
Linkify various pieces of text in the Description and Testing Done fields
Review Request #714 — Created Jan. 21, 2009 and submitted
|Review Board SVN (deprecated)|
This implements support for linkifying pieces of text in the Description and Testing Done fields. Specifically, the following are linkified: * URLs * /r/123 numbers (even /r/123/diff and such) * bug/issue numbers (in the form of "bug abc123", "bug #abc123", "issue abc123", and "issue #abc123")
Tested various links. They all seemed to work correctly. It didn't seem that unintentional links ended up forming in my tests.
