mga8-64 OK
Plasma, Intel, nvidia-current, backport kernel
Swedish localisation
Tested editing files locally, and syncing the Notes folder using our nextcloud-client to a NextCloud 25 server which edited same files with the NC app Notes. 

(and with server app QOwnNotres API installed - though I have not tested about that latter functionality as I am not sure what it does)

Seem to be working perfectly, thanks :)

Reviewed the changelogs of all of the versions since 20.8. Noticed that it no longer
allows using the same name with different cases.

Created a note that I renamed to alpha, another one that I renamed to ALPHA.
Installed the update. The ALPHA note disappeared.

An update with such a change is not allowed in a stable release.

Resolution: (none) => WONTFIX

Comment 7 Morgan Leijström 2023-02-07 09:30:07 CET
Well spotted, and good test!

- And I verify; using old version I created notes with names: note, Note, NOTE.
After update only "note" was listed.

However, the files are still there. Using Nextcloud file browser to rename "Note" and "NOTE" to "Note-2" and "NOTE-3", makes all three show up in QOwnNotes.
So, a bad implementation of a fix for a for many users foreign filesystem...

This is an app which is a companion to file syncing using Nextcloud.
As such it may sync on different file systems.

In this light it is a design bug fix
20.12.7: "now storing notes in different cases is also prohibited to prevent more problems on case-insensitive filesystems, like NTFS (for #1988 (opens new window))"

So... maybe backport? (for the many other bugfixes, translations, additions)

- But hold off a while, I will report upstream and ask for a fix.

Resolution: WONTFIX => (none)

Closed upstream, reason: stale.
