using a ftp user name that contains the "@" character

Asked by Mihai Chezan


I'm trying to use ftp as a central repository for bazaar. The problem is that the ftp user name is like "xxx@yyy". If I try:
bzr init ftp://xxx@<email address hidden>/repo/trunk
it doesn't work.
How can I specify the user name for the ftp account when the user name contains the "@" character?

Either use a newer bzr version, or escape the @ as %40 so you would use "ftp://xxx%<email address hidden>"

Newer versions of bzr should do the right thing and only break out the last @
