E-mail addresses should be separate from usernames.

Unfortunately, it's django which is restricting the username field to 30 characters in length. There's nothing we can do.

The LDAP module uses this as the login, I guess the LDAP module is the one that needs to be modified then. How do I open against this ?

I tend to have this issue with reviewboard on some setup too.

Given that Reviewboard is now using Django-1.6, it should be able to be fixed if Reviewboard would make use of the custom user feature introduced in Django 1.5 (https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.5/topics/auth/#auth-custom-user).
