Not Excatly sure were to put this. If this is in the wrong place please let me know and I will move it happily.
I was creating a gadget called "Consumer_Rev" on for our private domain in Google apps when I hit the eneter button and save it as "Consumer_Rev]'. Now I am unable to retrive this gadget in any way (using the command prompt fsct or the Private Gadget Editor).I can see it in the diretory list and it is saved as "Consumer_Rev%5D". I need to delete this gadget because since I have done this I am unable to delete gadgets from the private directory.

I have called and emailed google several times on this and they said they can not help since it is an open source project and suggested me to go there help forums. There wiki on fsct is out of date but can be found here:
Thank you

Thank you padas for the link. I have tried that several times. What happens is after I put in the command "deleteEntry Consumer_Rev]" it comes back as a bad request everytime.

From that same link:
Bad Request
The bad request error occurs if you try to add a gadget that already exists or if you specify an FSCT command with the incorrect parameters.

Exception in thread "main" com.google.feedserver.util.FeedServerClientException: com.google.gdata.util.InvalidEntryException: Bad Request invalid_input

You may need to scroll down through the list of gadgets in the Domain Gadget Directory Manager to find a gadget.

One of the problems you may be running into is the name of your gadget. saved as "Consumer_Rev%5D"  %5D is a bracket ] so make sure to include that.  Try it both ways, using the bracket and again with the %5d
