pkgsrc.se, case-sensitive

The web part of pkgsrc.se has not been case sensitive, the reason for this is that if you for example type http://pkgsrc.se/databases/ruby-dbi you should be redirected to the correct package without having to know the exact spelling. This however introduced a problem that we spotted today:

A new package with the name ruby-dbi was imported and the old ruby-DBI was removed, this is not a problem for the database/backend, the database/backend handles this excellent but we decided to remove the case-insensitivity from the web so one would be able to surf to both http://pkgsrc.se/databases/ruby-dbi and http://pkgsrc.se/databases/ruby-DBI.

The search function will still give you all results case insensitive.

This might however have introduced problem on parts of the site, so please contact us if you find something.
