Regex in metadata.xml don't match when using .
Regex on input in metadata.xml are used to match multiline strings.
In this case, we expect to use the regex to match the whole input, so '^' '$' should match start and end of string and '.' should match newlines.
This means the regex should use both 'single line' (aka s) and 'multiple lines' (aka m) options.

[problematic ex: <CONSTRAINT><REGEX> in filetemplate)
So, what we want is the regex to be always multiline.
We believe this is not a breaking change because for now, a regex with ^$ would never match multiline fields, so such an input can't have been added.
The change should be only to modify "case class RegexConstraint" to always add DOTALL and MULTILINE modifiers.
