4 Package Notes (1.2)

Splitflap can be considered stable. No backward-incompatible changes are planned.

4.1 Known Issues

See Splitflap’s issues tracker on Github for any known problems with the library, or to report problems.

4.1.1 Non-ASCII email addresses and domains

The Atom 1.0 and RSS 2.0 specs do not contemplate or allow for the use of non-ASCII characters in email addresses or domain names, which is a defect considering that non-English alphabets are in widespread use for both of these things.

At this early stage I have chosen to enforce the standards as written, for consistency’s sake. I do plan to add a parameter which would cause dns-domain? and email-address? to validate strings according to some alternative scheme that allows for non-ASCII characters. In order to do this correctly, though, I need to educate myself about any standards that exist in this area.
