Subject RE: Property case

The MARC link:

One second read it looks like Alexey only *suggested* a patch rather than
submitted one. I have been using a version of ant-contrib PropertyCopy I
hacked up for this purpose and would gladly through that in or else write a
patch and testcases for a change to the property task if you think it's
appropriate. Basically I just add an attribute for case (or perhaps
valuecase would be more clear) and define an EnumAttr Case with 'lower' and
'upper' as acceptable pararms. Then I do the conversion on the value just
before adding the property.

The casing conversion just helps me with a templating issue and allows me to
calculate some properties that I would otherwise have had to add to a
property file.

I can't remember that thread, must somehow have vanished from my radar.  Can
you post the direct MARC link?

filterreader and use <loadproperties> instead of <property>.
