Description Michael Diamond 2016-02-16 15:52:37 UTC
Previously reported as Bug 570037 but closed as invalid.

Hostnames may not allow underscores, but domain names certainly do (as evidenced by services that use them, and browsers that resolve them). According to the relevant RFC is RFC 1034, not RFC 2396.

Even if it were in violation of the appropriate RFCs these URLs exist in the wild and gnome-terminal could still support linking to them.
