Summary0029109: Global Game Settings: Android package names with a '.' anywhere in the string are disallowed, blocks updating published games
DescriptionIf you use a package name which has a '.' typed somewhere in the name, your build will be blocked stating that there is an invalid character in the package name.

Steps To Reproduce1. Open any 1.x project.
2. Go to GGS, Android.
3. Set the package name to
4. Apply then run for Android.
5. Observe that your build is blocked due to the extra '.' in the package name.
