Correct error message on group name #873


Updated by Tom Rochette at 2012-02-08 06:24 am

I confirm the message is incorrect.

Repro step:

1. Go to the Groups page in the administration section
2. Click on New group
3. Type in a group name longer than 30 characters.

Result: Incorrect error message Last name is too long (maximum is 30 characters) is displayed.

This is a side-effect of using the lastname variable in app/models/group.rb which inherits from Principal (problematic Liskov substitution).
