Hmm, in Gerrit the extension directory is lower-case: mediawiki/extensions/timeline. Can you rename the directory to match?

I think I know why this happened then. Our development machines are OS X case-insensitive. So most likely at some point it was capitalized way in the past, but future file copies went fine since OS X will not rename/ignore the difference. I will mark this as closed.
