[ovs-dev] [PATCH 1/3] ovsdb: Drop regular expression constraints.

Ben Pfaff blp at nicira.com
Tue Feb 23 16:08:43 PST 2010


Regular expression constraints have caused nothing but trouble due to the
lack of a ubiquitous regular expression library.  PCRE is *almost*
everywhere, but it has different versions, and different features, and
different bugs, in different places.  It is more trouble than it is worth.
So this commit drops support.
