Increase max character length for extension key
What kind of feature do you want?
Register extension key
An extension key must have minimum 3, maximum 30 characters (not counting underscores).
Where does the maximum value origin, and is it possible to increase it? Since extension developers are urged to use speaking variables and not come up with odd abbreviations the 30 character limit is obstructive.
What are the benefits?
- Speaking extension names
- Less odd abbreviations just to fit the character max size
- Same names on Github and Packagist possible (instead of shortcuts to fit the TER naming rules)
- Eason forks/patch extensions (»acme_extension_with_long_name« → »acme_extension_with_long_name_patched« instead of »acme_extension_with_l_patched«)
Add some use case
Github allows repository names with a maximum of 100 characters. I often need more than 30 characters and would like to use the same key as GitHub repo name, TYPO3 extension key, Composer package name etc.
