The proposal to merge lp:~pskoli93/postorius/list-name-limit into lp:postorius has been updated.

Description changed to:

When creating a new list a maximum character limit is necessary for name of the list, here a limit of 100 characters has been proposed to the list name.

A folder corresponding to the list-name at domain is created at the path mailam/var/lists. There is character limit on the name that can be given for path and file(more info- http://stackoverflow.com/a/6571568/3601099, http://unix.stackexchange.com/a/29001).

If we specify a very long name suppose exceeding 150 characters during the creation of the folder an error arises with the makedir() which leads to a HTTP 500 error.
