Hi Matthias:
I am looking at migrating a large Manila site, VanEats.com, to Drupal.
Have you done a Manila to Drupal conversion and do you have any
software or tools to automate the process?
Let me know either here or directly by emailing me (roland AT

Drupal doesn't allow URL aliases that map to Userland Manila posts since
they usually contain the '$' and are considered an invalid URL. This
patch allows '$' in an URL and thus an alias.
It also resolves a disparity between the 'allowable characters' of
absolute and relative URLs.  As far as I can tell, those parts of the
regexp should be the same.
