  • Attached traq-attachment-symbols.patch

This patch against git master removes the restrictions on attachment names in the routes for Attachments::view and Attachments::delete, the only character that is not allowed is a forward slash ('/'). It also URL-encodes the file names in attachment links, so attachments with names containing URL reserved characters such as '#' and '?' can be deleted.
