Description David Hart 2007-11-29 13:35:52 EST
May I suggest that all packages in FC9 have all lower case names?

`yum list` is case insensitive but `yum install is not` While an "-i" switch in
yum would help, case sensitivity remains in RPM, it would be more consistent to
package everything in lower case. I can see no advantage, whatsoever, to
retaining the mixed case scheme of some source packages. It makes no sense to
retain neXtaw vs nextaw.

I'm deferring this - this would need to be brought through FESCo. Feel free to
propose it there.
