Description

In current Plugin Manager, the names of plugins with (too?) long titles are truncated to 32 chars it seems:

OpenQuake Integrated Risk Modelling Toolkit
becomes
OpenQuake Integrated Risk Modell

INSPIRE Nederland plugin voor QGIS
becomes
INSPIRE Nederland plugin voor QG

Not sure what the best solution is:
Make column in Plugin Manager wider (easiest)
or
Let plugin site check for width of title and create error when longer then xxx characters?

I don't remember why I implemented the truncation (maybe just to avoid a narrow column with a few items much longer than the rest?). Now I reverted it in 3.0 and 2.18 and everything seems to work - the list view is not expanding automatically and the contents even looks quite good.
