I was not mixing them up, but I understand that any assumption I was making 
risked to be weak. I had noticed:

1) that my GNUmed client software (1.1.7) was failing to detect the existence 
of 1.1.12 tarballs

2) that the tarball string at


        had changed format from earlier version tarballs... the format was now

                gnumed-client.1.1.12.tgz (lower case gnu)

        and not

                GNUmed-client.1.1.12.tgz (upper case GNU, which form had been 
used in the past)

3) I had somehow made myself a note that "uscan looks for a string matching


        which appeared, to me, to be case sensitive

That's all. I did (do) not know how to resolve my own question on this, and 
that's why I asked. I did not have anything stronger on which to base the 
worry. Thank you, though.
