Is there a preferred capitalization convention for Bioconductor package names?

I am preparing a package intended for Bioconductor tentatively called 
LinMod (linear models for microarrays). Possible names for my package would 
be linmod, LinMod or linMod, i.e., no caps, cap of all initial letters, or 
formal class style capitalization. All three conventions are currently in 
use by more than one Bioconductor package.
