Description (last modified by sebastian)


With #2234 the form_handler decorator is introduced to encapsulate the logic of validating headers and parsing the request body, when processing form data. This logic is currently duplicated in sitescripts.formmail.web.formmail and sitescripts.reports.web.updateReport. So those controllers need to be updated to use the form_handlerdecorator as well.

Also with #2234, a reusable function to validate email addresses were introduced (i.e. sitescripts.utils.encode_email_address). However, sitescripts.formmail.web.formmail still validates email addresses differently.

What to change

Remove logic parsing form data from sitescripts.formmail.web.formmail and sitescripts.reports.web.updateReport and adapt those controllers to use the form_handler decorator.

Remove logic for validating email addresses from sitescripts.formmail.web.formmail and use sitescripty.utils.encode_email_address() instead.

While on it, also remove the call of the deprecated setupStderr() function from the scripts changed here.

I never got around to properly test my patch, for two years now, hence it is unlikely to happen any time soon. It might need rebasing too. Therefore I'm unassigning myself. If anybody else wants to rebase, test and land the patch, go ahead. ;)

In #4413, the previous version of was replaced with The latter already uses the form_handler decorator and encode_email_address(), so it looks like no change is necessary there, but these changes can be applied in /sitescripts/reports/web/
