Maximum filename length for GWT = 206?
Closed, ResolvedPublic



the current Config::$title_max_length = 207 (bytes). the max allowed by commons is 240 (bytes),

in the email thread referenced above, a request to cancel the upload of an item that does not meet the title length constraint was made. another task is to also set-up a notification system for GWToolset, but that will be addressed in another bug.
