GitHub Case-Insensitive Org Name


#1

Hullo!

Our stack is predominately Go and we recently tried changing our URL from CamelCase to lowercase to match the lowercase we use in our codebase. This created an issue with our CircleCI account by creating a duplicate organisation (as illustrated in the attached image).

The interesting thing is that Github is case-insensitive when it comes to the username/org name. As an example as far as Github is concerned both of these URL’s resolve to the same end-point (obviously only one being canonical);

This is also true for cloning as both of these work;

git clone https://github.com/circleci/frontend
git clone https://github.com/CircleCI/frontend

It would be great if CircleCI mirrored that behaviour for Github accounts where a recasing of the URL path doesn’t result in a second account;

Cheerio!
