12 character project id limitation is too short
Just like the limit on passwords I believe that a 12 character project id is too short. While I can understand putting
a limit on ids, something like 40 chars would still be reasonable and allow me to migrate existing projects from gforge
without renaming them. 40 chars should cover a lot of possible names, but 12 seems really short. (You can of course
choose any other limit you like ;-))

Please reconsider to change it to 30. Specially when Redmine is used inside of companies that has multiple products this is a bad and too short limit.
For example, if the company has two projects with similar names and similar subproject, it's too difficult to get up with nice names for them, example:
Foobar Manager - User Manual
Barfoo Manager - User Manual
The most logical names would be:
This obviously doesn't fit on the limit.
This is a must, from my point of view, specially due the multi-project nature of Redmine.
