Yes, I have no objections to discussing there, but at the end of the day of course
they know much less about Haskell packaging than the SIG does, so I expect they
would accept any recommendation we make either way.  I think it makes more sense
to discuss it first on fedora-haskell-list and get consensus there.

Hmm, but they are still in draft state and we were supposed to finish these package
reviews first but the guidelines would be ready...

I don't remember saying anything about the Fedora name standards - I said that
naming of Haskell libraries tends to be pretty consistent (it is not like they
use different casing in different places (like lowercase tarball, uppercase
mixed case module name or whatever).  When there is consistent use of case in a
then that clearly indicates upstream thinks that that cased name is the correct name
and there is no good reason for us to change that.  X11 is such an example.

Exceptions may occur and are indeed allowed by the Fedora Guidelines as you state
and that is all ok, but it is not stop us from recommending Haskell libraries
should follow the upstream naming as far as possible.
