#544 Case of package names
Closed: Duplicate None Opened 4 years ago by tibbs.

I just wanted to split this draft out to a separate ticket:

https://fedoraproject.org/w/index.php?title=PackagingDrafts%2FLowerCase&diff=0&oldid=416011

Basically cleans up the language a bit, and I've modified it from what was at the meeting to emphasize that domain-specific guidelines may override casing guidelines. Hopefully nobody will try to downcase perl module names.


Just a typo correction in the first sentence.

In the absence of specific guidelines relating to the type of software you are packaging, package names should be in lower case and '''use''' dashes in preference to underscores

Sorry, I shouldn't have filed this since we dealt with it in another ticket. I'll fix the typo when I write this up.
