For Python code at least, Guido has proclaimed:

https://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-ideas/2016-September/042340.html

I recommend naming all enums UPPER_CASE. They're constants (within a
namespace) and that's the rule for constants. It's helpful for the
reader of the code to realize what they are when passed around -- they
have a similar status to literal constants, you know they stand for a
unique value and not for some computed quantity.
