How many words can a tag contain?

Is there a maximum limit on the length of tags? I noticed that the tag for SQL Server Management Studio is truncated to sql-server-management-stu.

It seems like this should be an easy thing to correct, if not to allow the creation of new longer tags, but to correct existing tags that have been truncated.

It would be logical to conclude that the maximum tag length is 25, which seems quite reasonable. In the example you gave, that could be renamed sql-server-mgmt-studio.
