I dunno, I clicked 'Explore' on github to see a list of accounts+repos, and the tendency is to:
- have a lowercase name if it's an organization,
- have a NormalName if it's a user account,
- and match the account's case for the repo.
Not 'systematic', but it often happens.

In any case, there are some choices I find dull (github.com/jquery/jquery would work better as github.com/jQuery/jQuery, really), others are too complicated with elaborate case.

Are you in danger of obsessing on this because you are nervous about releasing and subconsciously you are using this pontification to force a delay?

No, not really...

I do, however, have to say that after getting a bit depressed this morning, I decided that it really doesn't matter when it's out. Nobody will try it out anyway, except for those active in here already, and said users could perfectly ask me for read access to the private Wedge repo-- I've been very, very generous with giving access to it since Pete left. So, really, it doesn't change MUCH...

But, it's also true that I was (secretly) planning to release a proper 'alpha' on the day the repo went public. It probably won't happen on the same day, but you never know. Alphas are made to be broken, after all...

Maybe we'll even be able to help. Use promotes maintenance and maintenance promotes efficiency and efficiency promotes fiddling and fiddling promotes changes. Changes that might be good for everyone!

Well, it also depends on whether I can keep the *motivation* to work on Wedge as long as there's no one using it, AND whether I can keep the *courage* to work on Wedge when it's ultra-successful and the forum is as busy as SMF's.

Okay, so /Wedge is a (close) winner, and I don't want to spend my life on this, so I chose /Wedge. If it turns out I can't live with /Wedge as an account name, I'll just switch back to /wedge, and screw up everyone who's been playing with the Wedge repo, but... Well, there are worse things in life, and I've already made my life complicated enough.

So I did a quick database update to turn all wedge/wedge into Wedge/wedge, which MAY have, ahem, transformed some of your posts as well, in this topic, but I don't think anyone will mind if their messages are case-corrupted, because well, the choice is made... :^^;:

I cant wait to try wedge, most people who have used aeva with smf would definitely jump ship as well

I don't know. Maybe they'll jump ship if I remove Aeva Media from sm.org entirely... :P
I'm not planning to do it, though, for these reasons:

- I'm proud of the fact that 3 years after I gave up on it, it's still the best gallery system available for SMF. (Or, as Arantor so elegantly puts it, "the least worst". Go ahead, Pete, make my day and code your own! I'm sure it'll be better than the 2 years of my life I invested on it!)

- It's free advertising for Wedge.

- Wedge only adds a few features (those from the non-free Aeva Media 2.x) to Aeva Media, and as such, switching from SMF to Wedge *just* for the gallery upgrades wouldn't make sense.

I will not, however, update Aeva Media for SMF 2.1 or later, or port it to any other fork. I will let it die its glorious death, while it keeps on living in Wedge. :)

Believe it or not, but... I'm currently uploading the repo.

So, in a few minutes (depending on my connection's speed, but it's a bit slow... and it's a big repo), you'll finally be able to download it. And maybe install it (if it works.) And maybe use it. And maybe enjoy it. ;)
