As I'm new here, I'm not aksing you to make changes for me. I didn't
know which overrides were acceptable and which weren't and I could have
truncated the name making it barely readable.

Before submitting the package I raised the issue of the limit on the
maintainers list. The general advice I got, was to go ahead wth the
override.  It was not pointed out to me that this would be a show
stopper for accepting the package. If I had known this from the start,
I would not have submitted an "invalid" package.

Making a database field longer should not be problematic or cause data loss.
Something like "ALTER TABLE tablename ALTER COLUMN pkgname TYPE VARCHAR(255);"
should do the job.

Best Regards
