github team special character

I have a team in github with the + character in it (millennnium+). The team has no issue in github, but the codeowners file stops working as soon as I assign that team to owning something. Once I removed that + from the team in github and the row in the codeowners file, it started working again.

To prevent future stalls Github I would like to request the codeowners file to be compliant with the special characters, or prevent entering special characters within the name of Github Teams. Thank you in advance!

So could you. I suspect as is I already file more GitHub bugs than most people on a daily basis. Stop harassing me.

Hello,
