Lowercase package names in package cache (resolves #2676) #2826

NuGet client used by dotnet CLI lowercases package names when saving them to packages folder and to the cache, while Paket doesn't touch the casing. On case-sensitive filesystems (i.e. on Mono under Linux) this causes dotnet restore to download the referenced packages again.

Repro steps (Windows + Docker)

  1. Checkout
  2. Open powershell, run run.ps1
  3. In the container, run dotnet restore --source /empty - it will fail since the package source directory is empty and AutoMapper is not yet present in the cache.
  4. Run mono paket.exe restore
  5. Run dotnet restore --source /empty again - dotnet still doesn't find the package in cache
  6. Lowercase the names of AutoMapper files and directories:
  • cd ~/.nuget/packages
  • mv AutoMapper automapper
  • cd automapper/6.1.1/
  • mv AutoMapper.6.1.1.nupkg automapper.6.1.1.nupkg
  • mv AutoMapper.6.1.1.nupkg.sha512 automapper.6.1.1.nupkg.sha512
  • mv AutoMapper.nuspec automapper.nuspec
  1. Run cd /test
  2. Run dotnet restore --source /empty. No failure this time - package was found in cache.

@forki sorry, I screwed up the previous PR.
