Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 236326
maximum username length too short
Last modified: 2016-07-26 19:46:20 EDT
Description of problem:
The maximum length of the username is 32 characters which is too short for some
usernames. It becomes easily apparent when using email addresses as usernames.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.log in with username > 32 characters
This was previously patched for RHEL (see bug #139803) and I would have expected
it to carry through to current releases.
I have attached a patch to increase the username length to 128 characters (as
per the RHEL 3 patch)
Created attachment 152518 [details]
