what is the maximum length of username?

What is the maximum length of username for useradd(8)?
Where is it defined?

In the list archive at
dated 2001, it said the maximum length is 8.
My current OBSD-3.6 can have username of 28 characters.
I think the maximum length is 32.
I need to confirm that number.
