Set maxSerializedEntitySize to 3000
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points


Back in 2015 we set the max entity size based on the largest revision at the time.
This was due to us having severe UI issues at the time.

Now we want to Set maxSerializedEntitySize to 3000, to allow slightly larger entities, as some are again reaching the limit that we set 4 years ago (T215380)

If this was something that more people were aware we are going to do, then it deserves an announcement so that they know that they can store slightly bigger entities than the previous limit.

I think we agreed not to bother announcing this and instead just let entities to grow at a natural rate, rather than give people a target of reaching the new limit.
