You cannot have it both ways. Either you want us to follow the
guidelines  ("When naming a package, the name should match the upstream
tarball or project name from which this software came.") or you want
some other rule ("everything lowercase"). Also, if you have a problem
with the way David and I packaged ConsoleKit, why don't you talk to us
directly, rather than complaining about "somebody" ?

Which is totally unrelated to the current discussion, no ?
