Issue #4873 wontfix

Use of CamelCase in repo name on Git repo URL

Anonymous created an issue

I would like to see that Bitbucket doesn't destroy the case of my Git repo name. If I decide to name my repository eg. 'MyCoolCustomControl' on creating it and Bitbucket give me a URL like:

https://phranck@bitbucket.org/phranck/mycoolcustomcontrol.git

then it is not the thing I was expecting to get. The reason is quite simple: If I develop reusable components (in my example this is MyCoolCustomControl control) I'm aware of using camel case, because it's related to the (main) class name of this component. So, if someone clone it from Bitbucket the root directory of this local repo will have the wrong case.

    Hi Frank,

    I am sorry this is not what you are looking for.

    We lowercase the reponame so that we don't get polluted namespaces. It is the much more likely case that someone does not want to care about case and that they will feel like the site has misbehaved if they ask for the wrong case and do not get the repo they are looking for.

    I hope you understand, cheers,

    Dylan
