Ok, that is a solution.

So I would now change the packages to
- use the upper case folder name (as it's done by fedora and opensuse)
- add a lower case sym link for compatibility reasons

We can add this to the changelog and the Mga3 release notes and remove 
the symlink again after Mga3.
This will give people time to adapt their code.

Comments on that?
