In our local Redmine Installation I use this patch to link to arbitrary protocols, e.g. on Ubuntu apt://rake installs rake upon clicking.

In order not to build every possible protocol into the regexp I simple replaced it with "some printable characters". This is obviously overly eager. For example foo does match with protocol "foohttp", whereas previously it would be recognized correctly.

Anyway, even if you won't include it I'll leave it here, in case someone could use it.

Thanks for this great project!

Good Patch,
i've searched a protocol extension for Lotus Notes Links.
I hope that somthing like this patch goes into the release.

This patch would match the javascript: link which could be a security risk.
