--- Comment #2 from Matthew Flaschen <> ---
However (for anyone unfamiliar), there are already clashing accounts which are
exactly the same other than case.

So for existing wikis, this requires a way to resolve those conflicts (and
different wikis may want different rules for this).  That means it probably has
to be a config option, potentially defaulting to case-insensitive for new

For the WMF specifically, *if* we want to transition to this, we should
probably do so at the same time as single login finalization
That way's there's only one huge "lots of usernames changed" event.

However, bear in mind this would increase the complexity of the SUL
finalization process.  Also, case-insensitive does not mean the same thing in
every language, and it's not the same as "just lower case them both then
compare them".
