Disallow gem names with caps #481

Extension of #451 for issue #421 - adds a test to ensure a gem can be saved with CAPS in the name when it already exists.


Merging this in allows us to close this #421, #481, and pull request #451. Looks good to go to me.

Holy moley! This is a BIGGIE!

Hey @evanphx @drbrain are we good to merge/deploy this? We've been talking about it forever.

I'd prefer to be use case insensitive to detect gems but use case preserve for any new gems. This change appears to prevent all future gems from having capital letters, which I think is the wrong way to go.


👍 to @evanphx's idea. It seems like it would be a much smaller change too.


@coffeencoke Do you want to make the changes to this to implement case preserving names, and case insensitive gem detection?

No movement, closing.
