Bug Description

I generated a snap with a long long long name. The store then refused to upload this snap saying:

The package name {long} cannot be more than 107 characters long.

The limit in snapcraft is only for the file name it generates. Maybe it should have a 107 limit too.

Changed in snapcraft:
importance: Undecided → High
assignee: nobody → Sergio Schvezov (sergiusens)
milestone: none → 2.12
status: New → Triaged
status: Triaged → Incomplete
milestone: 2.12 → none

Discussion in the mailing list resulted in the following regex:

^(?:[a-z0-9]+-?)*[a-z](?:-?[a-z0-9])*$

Nessita proposes a length of 50, Bret proposes to cut it down to 35 or 40.
