#18409 closed Bug (fixed)

Make RegexField work with unicode characters

Currently RegexField won't work with unicode characters. So for example it's not possible to have a username containing unicode characters using the contrib.auth forms.

It's a really simple fix (see pull request below) but I'm not sure if this is risky or potentially backwards compatible. If so then perhaps one could consider adding a new UnicodeRegexField class?

FYI, see all the "When UNICODE flag" notes in

I think this is fine, but I'd like to get other opinions.

++1 for unicode. If test suite passes, go for it!
