Created attachment 832415 [details]

Description of problem:
The Search Projects field, on the Projects page, does not appear to have a character limit.
This means a ridiculous number of character can be entered which has a negative performance impact on the browser and server.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Easy always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to $server/zanata/projects
2. Enter a massive amount of text into the project search bar (like Gutenberg's Moby Dick!)
3. Press Search
4. Wait for it...

Actual results:
It displays the entire text, prefixed with "Found 0 Projects matching query" 

Expected results:
I doubt anyone would need more than 256 characters in a search.

Project search field now is limit to 100 character, given it searches through slug (40 char max), name (40 char max), and description(100 char max)
