Comment (by John Bergqvist <JohnLBergqvist@…>):

 Replying to [comment:8 knight]:
 > I was contacted about this so I better explain what I said above a
 little better...
 > Assuming it does what it is supposed to, I am definitely AGAINST
 backporting it to 0.27 as it would break translations, while it might fix
 one person's problem it would create one for someone else...
 > Our translators currently work against master and the upcoming 0.28, we
 very rarely receive updates for the current -fixes version so it would
 create a problem which would not get fixes until the next -fixes version.
 > However, if the translatable strings are left as they initially were and
 the comparison is made case-insensitive and assuming this does what it is
 supposed to I have no problem with it being backported to 0.27.
 > I also think that since we have no control over the data we are feeded
 we should make the comparison case-insensitive and not depend on it being
 of a specific case, this could likely break in the future...
 > John, could you post a revised patch?
 > Thank you and have a nice day!
