            Bug ID: 236204
           Summary: Cannot use comma in setenv in login.conf
           Product: Base System
           Version: 12.0-STABLE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Many People
          Priority: ---
         Component: conf
          Assignee: bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: michael.osipov at siemens.com

I cannot set the following in login.conf

> :setenv=MAIL=/var/mail/$,BLOCKSIZE=K,\
> HTTP_PROXY=http\c//\c9400,\
> HTTPS_PROXY=http\c//\c9400,\
> FTP_PROXY=ftp\c//\c9400,\
> NO_PROXY="localhost,.siemens.net,.siemens.com,.siemens.de":\

because comma seperates the vars themselves.

While fetch(1) and curl(1) also supports whitespace-delimited values, poudriere

There must be some mechanism to escape commas just like semicolons.
