 over using original case culture names?
 ------- Additional Comments From bmaurer at users.sf.net  2005-06-11 11:02 -------
 about lower case names: thats a bit more linux-like. Moreover,
 changing it now would probably break apps (not thta anyone actually
 tests these code paths)

+I'm sure that nobody tried installing satellite assemblies to the 
+gac before me because satellite assemblies are usually using neutral 
+cultures and they cannot be used with current gacutil so if we want 
+to change this behaviour now is the correct time because no apps 
+will be broken. But if we change it later it may break apps.
+By the way the current gac behaviour (using lower case culture 
+names) is correct, because .NET Framework handles culture names of 
+assemblies case insensitive as well. It stores assemblies in file 
+system using the original case but it's better if Mono uses lower 
+case because it has to support case sensitive file systems as well.
+So lower case culture name handling should not be changed.
+But the bug (specific culture instead of neutral) is sill open 
+because we have discussed only about other things yet.:)
