Wikimedia turns first letter of name always to uppercase 

You can see this when you look at 
it redirects to

This might be on presentation level, so I scanned for jane023 in dump file 
It only occurs in a few comments, 
all xml tags are <username>Jane023</username> 


Out of curiosity, where did you find lowercase 'jane023' ? 
In a log file?

But in the wlmParticipatingUsernames.txt file I provided, you appear as
'Jane023'. That's what I meant when I said it was normalised.

FTR, you have 358 files as 'Jane023' and 32 as 'jane023':
- 343 were uploaded with the Upload Wizard, showing Jane023 for all of them.
- 32 files uploaded with the android app show you as jane023
- 13 files uploaded with the android app show you as Jane023 There are a
couple of them for which I don't have the tool used, which are the deleted
photos of Mark di Suvero.
