Public bug reported:
when creating a new list from the web admin interface, mailman ignores the case of the list name. E.g.:
"FOOBAR" becomes "Foobar"
First upper case letter is kept, from second letter on, uppercase is being converted to lowercase.
Version: 2.1.23 OS: Debian Linux Testing
** Affects: mailman Importance: Undecided Status: New
Actually, all list names are forced internally to lower case by design. Then the public display name of the list (aka real_name) is set to the list name with the initial character upper-cased. This is easily changed to anything you might want that matches case-insensitively, e.g. FooBar, FOOBAR, etc., with the first setting on the list's General Options web admin page.
