Incorrect restrictions in GAIA

I found a few incorrect limitations in GAIA.

 

1. The email address can't handle a + sign. It is a valid character in the account name as many servers allow it to distinguish between multiple uses of the same account.

 

2. The backslash is not allowed in a crontab entry. But in some cases you need it. For example I like to keep the local backups in check with:

/bin/find /var/log/CPbackup/backups/ -ctime +7 -exec rm {} \;

But the backslash is not accepted in GAIA.
