I have noticed a trend with regards to the case of project files. In
the old days these "information files" where all caps --files like
COPYING, CHANGELOG and README. More recently, with the uptake of
GitHub, there has been a trend to add extensions so GitHub can render
the document accordingly, e.g. README.rdoc. Going further it seems Hoe
has popularized the use of title case names with extensions, such as
History.txt and License.txt (perhaps b/c it's a Mac OS thing?)

Obviously this isn't some fundamental issue of great import. But I am
curious as to the what and wherefores that others may have for this
minor decision of project development.
