Subject RE: [Bug 368] Changed - Case sensivity BugRat Report#656

Nico,

The only way may be to assume that all file systems are case sensitive and
then populate a set of exceptions according to operating system. Pretty
platform dependent, of course.

Another option would be to make it an optional attribute of the
patternset/fileset. This puts control in the user hands and makes any
buildfiles that use the attribute somewhat less portable.

Thoughts?
