I've been asked to modify our local OJS installation (currently 2.3.6) to increase the length of the article metadata language field, which is currently limited to 10 characters. We have a journal that will be publishing in 5 languages, and our OJS librarian would like to be able to include the codes for all 5 in this field.
Looking at the source, it appears the only change required would be to:
to increase the value of the attribute "maxlength=10" applied to that input field.
The second change would be to the database structure, increasing the width of the 'articles.language' field, with a corresponding update to the XML schema files in the dbscripts folder.
I've recently inherited our OJS install and haven't done much work with the system yet, so I'm just hoping to get confirmation that these proposed changes should achieve the desired effect. Have I missed anything important here?
Alternatively, would this be an appropriate enhancement request for a future release?
