Last week I ran across a potential bug with branch names on case
insensitive file systems, the complete scenario can be found here:


The tldr is because refs are stored as plain text files except when
packed into packed-refs, Git occasionally cannot tell the difference
between branches whose names only differ in case, and this could
potentially lead to the loss of history.

It sounds like this is a known issue, and after some more digging I
did find some older threads related to this topic, but nothing recent.
So I guess I just wanted to bring this to the attention of the Git
devs and maybe restart some discussions.
