Bug Description

Binary package hint: bzr

I was trying to use the following commands:

bzr patch "http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/devel/iputils/iputils-20020927-addrcache.patch?revision=1.2"
bzr patch "https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=134099"
bzr patch "http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?msg=5;filename=id3lib.unicode.patch;att=1;bug=317478"

All of these end up failing with errors like:

bzr: ERROR: No such file: 'http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/devel/iputils/iputils-20020927-addrcache.patch%3Frevision%3D1.2'

This actually seems to be a bzr problem, as transport.get_transport(dirname).get(basename)
fails for at least the first URL.

Thanks,

It seems to be escaping the query string. I can understand
why some escaping is done, but this means it is not actually
possible to retrieve these URLs.
