Committing file with wrong case

From: Thomas Börkel <tbo_at_ap-ag.com>

A Windows case-insensitivity problem:
A user inputs a filename of a versioned file into a file generating tool (in
our case: a tool that generates HTML files). He writes the filename with
wrong case. The tool regenerates the file with the wrong case. Now you
cannot commit the file, because with this name, it's unversioned.

The tool has to scan the directory to find the right case for the filename
before generating it.

For Windows users, it would be really helpful, if it would be possible to
enable case-insensitivity in Subversion. This should apply to almost all
operations, I think.

I know, this is not a new issue, but maybe at least the above problem hasn't
been mentioned, yet.

So, what's the status about case-insensitivity in Subversion? Is there an
issue in the tracker (I didn't find one, despite some minor case-problems),
that one could vote for?
