TL;DR: change the rule for variable names from UpperCamelCase to lowerCamelCase.

Just to get wider visibility on this, I'm raising this again as an RFC, as suggested by Roman Lebedev.

My original post from last week is here and gives a rationale: http://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/llvm-dev/2019-February/129854.html. There seemed to be general agreement that the status quo is not ideal.

Chris Lattner pointed out that this came up in 2014 as well: http://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/llvm-dev/2014-October/077685.html

I've created a patch to implement the change. Review and comments welcome: https://reviews.llvm.org/D57896
