packaging for Mac should not put 2 cases of README in case-insensitive filesystem #130
When trying to copy Extraterm.app from the packaged DMG file to my Mac, I get an error because there are two node modules that includes two README files with different capitalizations, and the Mac filesystem (by default) is case-insensitive.
Dragging the file to the Applications folder causes this error:
You can’t copy “Extraterm.app” because it has the same name as another item on the destination volume, and that volume doesn’t distinguish between upper- and lowercase letters in filenames.
Work-around: use rsync to copy the Extraterm.app folder into /Applications. It will simply overwrite the other readme files when it encounters the conflict.
