It is considered rude to ask the same question over and over again in many places on the same forum/tracker in a short period of time, please refrain from it in the future.

Regarding your question: core supports variable project name and identifier lengths since some time, why would you want to do it in a plugin?

I'm sorry to ask question in many places.

I would like to write a plugin instead of a patch file because the problem with patches is that as soon as you’ve applied a change to the software, next time you update the code or try to apply a different patch, you’ll either overwrite your changes or, if your unlucky, break your site.

As I already said: You don't need the patch anymore, recent Redmine stable versions support the longer project identifiers and names already!

Hello Felix, sorry for disturb you again. We are using Redmine V1.0.1 and my boss does not want to upgrade into new Redmine version.

Could you please give some instructions to write a plugin for raising project-name length-limit from 30 to 60?

I tried to test your patch file at Redmine v1.0.1 and it got the following errors. Please give some advices. Thanks you.
