Homepage length limit for Projects
There seems to be a URL length limit for the Homepage of a project. The only reason I can think of for such a limit is that it might overflow around the page and play bad with the layout. But this puts an unreasonable restriction on the URLs which can be linked to. For instance, Google Summer of Code application urls are too long to be included (example)
The solution for this is, of course, to not use
and instead use

I think this homepage field could be removed or at least moved to a custom field via a migration. As you said, the url can be entered in the project description, with wiki formatting as well.
+1 I have a customer requesting me to extend the db column size because their url is 64 characters. I would prefer to have homepage removed completely from Project. The description can be used or a custom data field.
