Email notification source tries to indent HTML from console output

    Description

      We use the extended email notification plugin and its regex tokens to email a section of the console output. That section is a basic HTML with a few <pre> tags that are pre formatted. After the latest update of both the plugin and jenkins, the section of the console output started getting a "tidyhtml" treatment.

      Old email source and console output looked like this:
      <html>
      <head></head>
      <body>
      <table border="1">
      <tbody>
      <tr>
      <td> <b>TEXT</b> </td>
      <td> <b>TEXT</b><pre>
      line
      line<v1>line
      line<v1>line
      ...

      New email source looks like this (and messing up the actual email):
      <html>
      <head></head>
      <body>
      <table border="1">
      <tbody>
      <tr>
      <td> <b>TEXT</b> </td>
      <td> <b>TEXT</b><pre>
      line
      line
      <v1>
      line
      line
      <v1>
      line
      ...

      While I don't mind indentation and pretty printing, it seems like a bug to try to beautify (by introducing new lines and spaces) the output of a console.

      EDIT: alright, looks like jira clears any leading blanks so I'll use * to indicate space.
      New output:
      <html>
      *<head></head>
      **<body>
      ***<table border="1">
      ***<tbody>
      ****<tr>
      *****<td> <b>TEXT</b> </td>
      *****<td> <b>TEXT</b><pre>
      line
      line
      ******<v1>
      *******line
      line
      *******<v1>
      ********line
