Description Jaroslav Tulach 2003-03-18 12:26:37 UTC
According to Arch review using case-insensitive
environment variables on unix is wrong. we should
either documented it or forbid it.

Comment 1 Jaroslav Tulach 2003-03-18 12:28:12 UTC
Personally I do not think this matters, users on UNIX can access
variables as "Env-HoMe" and do not need to use "env-home". I guess it
is enough to just documented it.
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2003-03-18 12:56:53 UTC
Sure, I don't think any code change is required.
Comment 3 Jesse Glick 2003-06-06 19:57:49 UTC
This is WONTFIX, right?
Comment 4 Jaroslav Tulach 2003-06-08 09:22:48 UTC
Right, wontfix.
