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
http://www.monkey.org/openbsd/archive/misc/0101/msg00766.html
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.

TIA,
Zoong
