    Description

      Hi,

      the string matching behavior when using a selector statement has changed sometime between versions 3.3.1 and 3.5.1 (future parser)

      Before:
      Strings matched whether they are capitalized or not. (e.g. Debian and debian)

      Now:
      Only lower case is matched (e.g. debian)

      Problem:
      This breaks many existing puppet modules!
      Many modules match facts like ::osfamily. They will fail because the capitalized fact no longer matches.

      Some example code illustrating the problem is available at https://gist.github.com/fadenb/a785f40de0c6c7567928

      If you need futher information please do not hesitate to contact me (IRC is probably the fastest way)
