            Reporter: Erik Hatcher


Pasting from solr-dev to track this:

A #code4libber made this comment a moment ago:

     "(nitpick) when you finalize the DTD for schema.xml, could you
make fieldtype camel-case like the others. Or make the others lower-
case."

I nixed the thought of a DTD, but it does look funny now that I look
at it.

I agree the inconsistency isn't ideal.
What's your preference... all camel case or all lower?

I think camelCase is fine since it'd only require one place to be changed instead of others.
 Doesn't matter to me at all personally... I'll tinker with schema.xml to tweak it, so as
long as the example schema.xml is solid and consistent I'm happy.  And, maybe, just maybe
schema.xml will be generated from a user-interface driven model... hmmmm.... I'm still on
the fence on whether schema.xml should be generated or generic, or a hybrid somehow.

 Perhaps we can modify it to be case-insensitive (to keep
backwards compatibility)?   Or if it already is case-insensitive we
should make the example schema.xml's to be consistent.

Thoughts?

It is case sensitive, but it shouldn't be too hard to make things
consistent and keep back compatiblity, and performance doesn't matter
since it's parsing at startup.   Then we should erase every trace of
the old style in the docs and example.
