How to get LFS to track files by extension regardless of casing?

Hi Everyone.  I have SourceTree running on MacOS, and I was wondering how I can add file extensions to Git LFS regardless of whether the extension contains upper and/or lower case lettering?

As an example, I have *.3ds in my LFS tracking list, but I just tried to commit a file with a .3DS extension, and I was warned that I should add the file type to LFS because it was over 2mb.  

I don't want to add every possible combination to the list (*.3Ds,  *.3dS. *.3DS, *.3ds) for all file types we want tracked.  Surely there must be a way.  Thoughts?

Hi Jade, at the moment there isn't any workaround for that. It's been reported as a bug at SRCTREEWIN-6616. Please watch it to be notified of further updates, you can also comment on it if there's something you'd like to ask.

Hope this helps!
