Description Sander Temme 2005-01-15 18:20:23 UTC
The default index page of Tomcat 5 contains a deep link into Bugzilla in the link bar. This link is 
supposed to call up all open Bugs against Tomcat 5, but it is broken and instead results in a Bugzilla 
error message. 

The Bugzilla error message says to mail the Bugzilla administrator, which is the infrastructure 
mailinglist in general and yours truly specifically. However, the brokenness is not in Bugzilla, but in the 
URL on the Tomcat home page. 

Fixing this is a simple matter of removing the occurrences of %27 in the Bugzilla URL. However, in the 
patch that I'm about to attach I have significantly shortened the URL since you don't have to pass 
Bugzilla the empty fields. 

Hope we can fix this fastly: meanwhile I'll update the Bugzilla error page to point back to this bug.
