Subject: Spec: restrict allowed characters
The Meta spec should restrict the set of characters allowed. I propose to restrict the characters to the list defined in the XML specification. http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/#charsets Rationale: Control characters may cause unexpected things in the CPAN infrastructure. See for example bug RT#58038 https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=58038 -- Olivier Mengué - http://search.cpan.org/~dolmen/ http://github.com/dolmen/
