Character limit for spec file summary?

Is there an actual limit or guideline on the character length of the
summary tag?

I can't seem to find anything one way or the other.

Thanks,
Richard

I created a PR <a href="https://pagure.io/packaging-committee/pull-request/912" title="https://pagure.io/packaging-committee/pull-request/912">https://pagure.io/packaging-committee/pull-request/912</a>
to try and make these things clearer when the text is read. Feedback
desired and welcome.

Hi,

From the guideline :

"Also, please make sure that there are no lines in the description longer
than 80 characters."
