            Bug ID: 62396
           Summary: Usernames should be case-insensitive
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.23-git
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: General/Unknown

The handling of usernames should be case-insensitive in core MediaWiki.

This means, possibly among other caveats:

* 'QWERTY' and 'qwerty' and 'Qwerty' should be considered the same
  username for the purposes of account creation and logging in
* Titles in the User: namespace should be case-insensitive like in the
  Special: namespace (related to bug 453)
* Usernames starting with a lowercase first letter should be permitted
  (bug 1574 / bug 26396), and preferably users should be able to
  change the casing on already existing accounts themselves
