> As of now the names of users (id) are case sensitive. Retrieving user "name" and
> "Name" returns different User objects. Each user data is then stored in separete
> folders; "users/name/" and "users/Name". This is fine on linux as files are case
> sensitive, but not so good on Windows as file names are case insensitive.
> On Windows the user "Name" and "name", will be different users but after a
> server restart they will be populated with the same data. It is the same data as
> both user objects has been loaded with data from the "users/name" folder. So
> this means that on Windows, the user objects should be the same as they contain
> the same data.
> The background to this enhancement is that I have two issues reported on the ci-
> game (3990 and 4350). Depending on how people log in to a machine, they will
> have different casing on their user name. This is fine, but the big problem (in
> my eyes) is that Hudson stores two different user's data in one folder. Therefore I think Hudson should treat user names case insensitive, as the users
> is the same person (ie same data after a restart).
> The effect of this change would be small as I dont think there are no hudson
> installations that have users with different casing in their names and still
> would like to make a distinction between them.
