Description David Siegel 2013-02-11 22:04:43 UTC
I created a project named 123456789, and my RootNamespace was empty, so my build failed.

I recommend that when sanitizing project names to make RootNamespace values, we *add* characters if possible to make the namespace valid. For example, I created a project named '1hello' and RootNamespace was set to 'hello' – might be better to preserve information by adding a prefix – '_1hello' or 'Project1hello'.

Already fixed.
