AppInspect v2.2.0 wrongly reports that there is no named capturing group in Extract in props.conf



while checking our app with AppInspect v2.2.0 an extract in props.conf was flagged with this error :


[EXTRACT-nfo_hostname] setting in props.conf specified a regex without any named capturing group. This is an incorrect usage. Please include at least one named capturing group. File: default/props.conf Line Number: 19


Line 19 is :

EXTRACT-nfo_hostname = ((\w{3}\s+\d{1,2}\s\d{2}:\d{2}:\d{2})|(1\s\d{4}-\d{2}-\d{2}T\d{2}:\d{2}:\d{2}.{1}\d{2}:\d{2}))\s+(?P<nfo_hostname>[^ ]+)\s+(nfc_id|NFO)

It has a named capturing group : (?P<nfo_hostname>[^ ]+)

What could be wrong? The error is not present when checking the built spl file with the CLI version of AppInspect v2.2.0

In my opinion it might be a bug in AppInspect. Attempted to  email, but it is bouncing back. Is there some other channel to reach the AppInspect team?

I had found out that it is a bug which will be fixed in the future.
