See this explanation of the problem:
Easiest solution is probably to truncate slugs to 240-245 characters to allow for ";isdiah", ";isad" standards suffixes and possible increment numbers ("-2", "-3") for duplicate slugs.

- Status changed from In progress to QA/Review
Actually, truncating existing slugs in a migration script is a bad idea. If a long slug is working in a previous version of the app, it should still work in Release 1.3, and we should avoid changing slugs whenever possible because they are used to provide "permanent" URLs.
Marking issue for QA-review.
