Re: Remove check-case-insensitive.py from contrib?

I have no problem with using the case-insensitive.py script. But can someone update the comment header to explain how to call case-insensitive.py? I have no clue what needs to be passed to it and in what order. Executing the script without any arguments doesn't tell much either. And there is nothing in the read me or on subversion.tigris.org about how to call this script. A Google search found lots of sites with information about check-case-insensitive.py , only one or two mentions case-insensitive.py. Searching the mailing list archives on haxx found similiar results as Google.

Thanks,

Johnathan
