Could someone clarify the rules on package naming

Background:  I've packaged something its author calls SuperLU_DIST using
the rpm name superlu_dist.  I interpreted that as consistent with those
guidelines as well as allowing it to be searched for, and without the
inconvenience of mixed case.  Others opinions are that it should be
changed to superlu-dist or SuperLUDIST, which would mean you couldn't
search the repository for the proper name of the software, like the
existing SuperLUMT v. SuperLU_MT.  (I think that case-insensitive search
is appropriate, but again others don't.)
