Description Chris Weyl 2007-03-17 05:33:52 UTC
Given that the new admin/branching processes in Fedora center around a package's
review bug, is there any way to increase the size of the maximum alias length? 
It would be useful to be able to use package names instead of bug numbers,
especially for people as prone to fat-fingering things as I :)

The maximum length is currently 20 chars.  Currently, the longest package name
in Extras is 50 chars; maybe a new max length of, say, 100?

Accepting bug and will need to update the length.

Comment 2 David Lawrence 2008-08-30 04:10:37 UTC
Alias is now 255 characters in length.
