[opensuse-packaging] Mixed case package names for php and python packages
Dear all,

I'm currently packaging several python packages, and found that there are
several packages available in mixed case notation (E.g. python-PyYAML or
python-Sphinx). There is al global rule documented in
http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Package_naming_guidelines#Case_Sensitivity ,
saying whenever possible lowercase package-names should be used.

I have found lots of packages (like php5-pear-Horde*) in the php section and
also many others in the python section. Shouldn't that be cleaned up (as a
long-term-target)? For cross-distribution projects it makes things a bit
difficult, as e.g. Fedora uses the lower-case filenames of several python
projects.
