Description

In Git, you can have folder names with different capitalization and they will be distinct.

For example, wp-content/themes/LayerSlider:
https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/tree/1.14.x/wp-content/plugins/LayerSlider

Is different than wp-content/themes/layerslider:
https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/tree/1.14.x/wp-content/plugins/layerslider

We need to remove the duplicate ones:
- In /wp-content/plugins/, LayerSlider should probably be kept, while the other one should be removed.
- In /wp-content/themes/, there are two Basic themes, but they are both different...:
https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/tree/1.14.x/wp-content/themes/Basic
https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/tree/1.14.x/wp-content/themes/basic

I would make the LayerSlider change, but Git on Windows is a little problematic:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/devops/repos/git/case-sensitivity

Not sure what to do with the Basic themes. Maybe nothing needs to be done.

Boone, I'm assigning this to you since I do not develop on a Linux OS (although I really should!).

The Basic themes are different. Since there's no problem, I think nothing needs to be done in that case.

LayerSlider does seem like a problem, since it's the same plugin. I've removed layerslider from the codebase in https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/5ae70ec94936cbd51362f56912167ff035d59d65, and run a routine to switch sites running the old plugin to the new one.
