You may have a custom user/group notation used for access control. e.g. UID:userID, LDAPGROUP:group-name. For that, you need to have:
  • A custom user mapping handler dealing with that notation
  • An InterWikis rule or a custom plug-in to render that notation as links to a web interface to the user/group directory

In that case, users expect the same notation is valid in WebNotify. Without this enhancement, you can put a custom notation by surrounding it with single quotes (') or double quotes ("). But it's cumbersome especially because you don't need to put quotes around a custom notation used for access control.

To do without quotes, TWiki::Contrib::MailerContrib::WebNotify::_load() needs recognize custom notations. For that $TWiki::cfg{MailerContrib}{CustomUserGroupNotations} is to be introduced. It has a regular expression matching the custom notations, and _load() utilize it.
