How to allow dots in username

Description of my issue

I would like to know, if its possible to allow dots in usernames at yunohost. Everytime i would create a User i’m only allowed to use alphanumeric characters and the underscore sign. Can I change this behaviour?

Best regards for helping me out :slight_smile:


My YunoHost server

Hardware: VPS bought online
YunoHost version: 3.8.0
I have access to my server : Through SSH and through the webadmin
Are you in a special context or did you perform some particular tweaking on your YunoHost instance ? : no


Unfortunately this is not possible, sorry. Having a dot within the username would break plenty of programs and scripts that could use dots as separators (you can search the Internet for “debian dots in username” to have an idea how bad it can get).
