A very minor point, but worth reporting anyway ...

If a single quote (an apostrophe) is included in a
message to a sourceforge-hosted mailing list, it
appears as a double quote in the mailing list archive
pages.

This can cause subtle problems when cutting and pasting
code snippets such as this Perl snippet:

print 'user@domain.com'

Which gets turned into

print "user@domain.com"

which does something quite different.

It is also a bit distracting to read text with quoble
quotes where apostrophes should be, eg: It"s

    Greetings,

    For simplicity, I am closing this ticket and consolidating
    it under the existing Master Bug Report, located here:

    https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=536749&group_id=1&atid=200001

    I recommend you monitor that tracker item in order to
    receive future updates.

    Thank you,
