Bug #2253

Project Section id truncated when saved.

External issue:


Working with SVN trunk version.

The entry form for project sections states that a section id can be specified of up to 100 characters in length but after saving the id is truncated to 20 characters. This is due to the migration for the new project section model which defines the corresponding column with a max length of 20.
The truncation also causes trouble later on when attempting to display a section overview. With a truncated section id this somehow leads to a failure to find the right view.
If I keep my section id below 20 characters I can also successfully display its overview.
