A URL cannot contain blains. According to the RFC, all blanks (and some other characters) have to be encoded as %20 etc. As a result, "svn info" shows correct URLs (i. e. URLs with %20 in it, not with blanks in it).
When providing a URL with %20 in it to the Jenkins GUI, Jenkins makes two errors:
- It says that this URL is not in the repository, which is simply wrong.
- It can checkout using this URL but is unable to further proceed.
So the syntax handling should be improved.
