A new release of coreutils, 6.9-5, is available for experimental use,
leaving 6.9-4 as current.
This is a minor patch release. It attempts to add some case-insensitivity
smarts to mv, cp, and install. In other words, 'mv a A' should now cause
the file to be renamed, rather than reporting an error, if 'a' and 'A'
happen to be case-insensitive synonyms for the same file. I've tested
this with disk files, virtual files (such as /proc), and managed mounts,
but not with CYGWIN=check_case. Also, because it is a big enough patch, I
am leaving this as an experimental release for a while longer in case some
regressions turn up.
Are you planning to submit the patch upstream?
