Description of problem:
The name of a VM network is limited to 20 chars today but should be limited to 15 characters.
The current implementation creates Linux bridge (which is limited to 15 chars) using the name of the network.
I would add validation for the input but not change the DB scheme,mostly because not all networks require bridge.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I think the limitation should be that the first 15 chars string should be unique, not limited so much in length. (see example in Bugzilla, with its annoying 20 chars limitation for a bug alias).
would be ok with my suggestion, truncated in yours (or disallowed).
backend limitation is a higher priority than the history db one
