Emails with trailing spaces incorrectly detected as invalid
|Category:||Accounts / authentication||Estimated time:||0.50 hour|
currently using 0.9.5.stable.3830
I originally thought this was a problem with email addresses with a "." in them, where the validation incorrectly identifies this as an invalid email address. (I think this was the problem in 0.9.3, but I have since updated)
Email addresses with a trailing space(s) are being flagged as invalid. I think it would be better to simply trim any extra space from the input field before validating/saving.
