mysql ignoring :length option while migrating

Reported by Uros Zekar | March 24th, 2009 @ 11:08 PM

The migration for mySQL creates varchar(50) for all "String" columns. It results in the error like this when it finds a message or author that exceeds 50 chars: (mysql_errno=1406, sql_state=22001) Data too long for column 'message' at row 1 Query: UPDATE integrity_commits SET message = 'Build distributables under pkg/ instead of dist/ (per blake's request)', updated_at = '2009-03-24 14:28:48', author = 'Ryan Tomayko rtomayko@gmail.com', committed_at = '2009-03-24 01:47:24' WHERE (id = 1)

I resized the message and author manually to varchar(255): ALTER TABLE integrity_commits MODIFY message varchar(255), MODIFY author varchar(255);
