Hi Malte,

Looking forward to meet you at the T3DD!

>>> * FLOW3
>>> * PHP

Ok, I misunderstood your point. This code-sniff can also be done by RegEx.

>>> The package name should be UpperCamelCase (see CGL). But this is not 
>>> possible to check, due to abbreviations...
>> What do you mean with 'abbrevations'? Could you please give an example?
> -> abbreviation
> e.g. PHP or company names (e.g. DHL)
> Words like PHP might not be checkable.

"DHL" IMO is UpperCamelCase - it's just a weird camel ;-)

> So, see you tomorrow.

Have a nice trip to Elmshorn.
