Subject Repository case sensitivity.
Date Thu, 16 Aug 2007 02:20:19 GMT
As I was working on the metadata stuff for MRM-463 I discovered an 
interesting thing in the repository, wanted to know what you all think 
about this.

Case sensitivity:

See http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/logkit/

How should we handle this?
Think about the proxy request for it.

logkit:logkit:1.2::jar
logkit:LogKit:1.2::jar   (notice capitalization)

Those two cannot co-exist on a repository served from windows ATM.
Nor can those two artifacts co-exist in the local repository.

Archiva running on UNIX sees them as different.

Do we report this? (I say yes)
If so, how?

Need to create a jira for this. (any takers)
