    Attempt to fix irregular HTML display of package matlab-gdf in HTML output. (Re. #907425) · 348a9237
    Felix Lechner authored
    As lamby pointed out, the package matlab-gdf that gave rise to the bug
    belongs to the section 'contrib/science'. The section is somewhat
    unusual because it uses a slash.
    
    No slash was present in the HTML page source (as one might expect for
    an unescaped character) and the output looked a little different from
    what was reported in the bug. (The version and the section were both
    absent.)  Nonetheless, this patch seemed like a reasonable attempt to
    resolve the bug. It is supposed to escape forward slashes to the HTML
    sequence '/' but it is untested.
    
    It looks like the archive component for individual packages runs
    through the routine html_quote, which is changed here, before being
    passed to Text::Template:

    This commit may or may not close the bug. It needs to be tested.
