I'm with you in trying to understand and follow practices, in some
cases there may not have been perfect adherence or even a guideline.

Maybe this is a case to leave the original page alone and build a
redirect from the proper CamelCase page?


HowTos/CustomKernel => HowTos/Custom_Kernel

I guess that doesn't bother me because I prefer the MediaWiki style of
page naming (no FakeNesting/Pages, no CamelCase.) I agree an argument
can be made for:

HowTos/Custom_Kernel => HowTos/CustomKernel

While I do love consistency, whatever is best for users is of a higher
priority here.
