#2087 Short names for tools mount points

fixed

No

I noticed that short (two letters) mount points were not accepted, I tried to define .../xcdl/py (for a Python Git) and .../micro-os-plus/se (for a Second Edition Git) and both were rejected.

I finally renamed them to .../xcdl/python and .../micro-os-plus/second, but these were reflected in quite longer git folders, xcdl-python and micro-os-plus-second.

Is there any good reason to prevent two letter mount points being used?

Regards,

Liviu

    The restrictions for mount points is now as follows:

    • The mount point is the name of the tool as it will appear in a URL. A valid mount point for this tool must begin with a letter or number, contain only letters, numbers, dashes, underscores, periods, and plus signs, and be from 1-63 characters in length.
