Note that this is something we enforce when reviewing packages'
descriptions in the Smith reviews for English (but that project is
awfully slow given the low resources we have and we're still currently
focused on packages with debconf templates, which were the first

May I suggest adding some other project names which capitalization is
not always obvious. Others can probably add more of these, but at
