Description

14 years ago
some of these critters are noun phrases, so perhaps more parentheses are needed:

----

Name:	a short name identifying this type
	[					]
Description: 	a comprehensive description of this type
		|							|
		|							|

Category: 	the products/components to which bugs must (inclusions) or must not
(exclusions) belong in order for users to be able to set flags of this type for them
Product/Component:	Inclusions:		Exclusions:
[		|v]	|		|	|		|
[		|v]	|		|	|		|
[ Include ] [ Exclude ] [ Remove Inclusion ]	[ Remove Exclusion ]

Sort Key: 	a number between 1 and 32767 by which this type will be sorted when
displayed to users in a list; ignore if you don't care what order the types
appear in or if you want them to appear in alphabetical order
	[	]
  	[ ] active (flags of this type appear in the UI and can be set)
  	[ ] requestable (users can ask for flags of this type to be set)
CC List: 	if requestable, who should get carbon copied on email notification of
requests
	[					]
  	[ ] specifically requestable (users can ask specific other users to set flags
of this type as opposed to just asking the wind)
  	[ ] multiplicable (multiple flags of this type can be set on the same bug)


--
the products/components to which bugs must (inclusions) or must not (exclusions)
belong in order for users to be able to set flags of this type for them

is a sentence without punctuation. it could also use a rewrite (the |for them|
is almost ambiguous).

what is the UE question on this one? Removing the UE keyword. Poor grammar doesn't necessarily mean poor user experience, just bad editors :P. But in all seriousness this should be fixed so that the sentences make sense. however, the comment which describes the problem kinda confuses me.

Removing UE keyword

Also, seems invalid on the head. Timeless am i missing something?

i was using ue as part of a wordsmithing expedition.

we had a potential customer who objected to poor English in Bugzilla, and having spoken with them, I have to agree their complaints are justifiable. Note that while things might only be somewhat bad for native speakers, they can get really bad for non native speakers, and localizations.

I think "polish" might be a more appropriate keyword for the wordsmithing bits.
