Re: naming .bb files

Thanks Ross!

I've tried a .bb file name with capital letters and Hob is not liking it
at all. So it looks like uppercase might also be a problem.

There seem to be certain rules regarding .bb files naming, but
those are not written anywhere. Some of those rules seem to be:

* No spaces
* Underscores can only by used to separate name and version
* No ASCII special characters
* No non-ASCII characters
* No uppercase letters

Does anybody know of any others we should be aware of?
I wasn't aware of any restrictions on uppercase, but the recipe name
part is probably restricted to ASCII alphanumeric (a-z, 0-9) and ASCII
hyphens, then a underscore for the version separator, which is
alphanumeric and periods.
