Bug#675353: Case inconsistency in machine field definitions

Package: flash-kernel
Version: 3.0~rc.4
User: ubuntu-devel@lists.ubuntu.com
Usertags: origin-ubuntu quantal

The README refers to Required-packages. However,
debian/flash-kernel-installer.postinst uses Required-Packages and
get_machine_field is case sensitive. This causes packages that
developers specify as required actually ending up being ignored.

Further, the existing database appears to have many entries listed with
this error.

But Bootloader-sets-root appears to be used with this capitalisation,
which is inconsistent.

Can I suggest a review of the capitalisation of these fields to make
them consistent across themselves, the documentation, the code and the
existing database?

At a minimum, the existing fields in the database should be fixed so
that debian/flash-kernel-installer.postinst can see them, and the README
should be fixed so that developers won't insert new entries into the
database in error.
