 From http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC:Style_guide#Article_naming (I 
didn't write it), it's considered MediaWiki good form to not capitalize 
everything, thus just Distro_version_migration_nastiness.

What may confuse casual editors is MediaWiki automatically capitalizes 
the first letter of page titles, so http://wiki.laptop.org/go/releases 
shows the Releases page.  This "feature" (along with automatically 
turning spaces into underscores) simplifies making links within text: 
you can write
   we want to avoid [[distro verson migration nastiness]] in the future
and don't have to provide alternate display text for the link.

There are #REDIRECT pages on wiki.laptop.org for some alternate 
capitalizations, like Content_Projects.

No worries,
