   Mac OS file systems by default are not case sensitive that's why untar'ing of
   SDM package leads to missing file (LICENSE file) so the user is unable to
   install master host on such system, because the LICENSE file cannot be found.


   It's P3 bug, we have limitation that master host can be installed on Mac OS that
   is case sensitive.

   Suggested Fix/ Work around:

   The doc directory structure in distribution has to be changed this way that the
   structure does not rely on case sensitivity. There exists also work around. To
   install master host the administrator should do the following steps. Rename the
   directory License in "doc" directory (of distribution), for example to
   License_dir. Create symbolic link in doc directory with name "LICENSE" that will
   point to "doc/License_dir/License.txt".


   No changes to code. The script for creating the distribution has to be updated
   (creating) new names.

   How to test:

   Run installation of master host on Mac OS with file system that is not case
   sensitive. (use distribution packages)

   New note to Analysis:

   In script when the directory License is copied to distribution,
   this directory (License) has to be renamed. Location script >>

   Conclusion of a short discussion with Andre about this issue:

   A TS test would be ideal to check (recursively) that the hedeby install dir does
   not contain any such name collisions (two dirs/files in the same directory that
   have the same lowercase name).

   Putting this test into the TS would also allow to check the GE install
   directories in the same way.

   This issue is here for information purpose. This is known restriction for our
   system and it was decided on the meeting that because of small impact (and
   existing workaround) it will not be fixed until requested/escalated.
