In application permissions screen there is a string describing the author of the application and the 'developer' string is used there however while installing the application the 'author' string is used. We should change the string in the permissions screen. Furthermore, the 'developer' string is used also in 'More information' setting where in Polish it must be translated differently.
If the problem is the inconsistency of the literal (author vs. developer) I do not think we should block on this one. If there are any further problem, please provide more details and exact Steps to Reproduce. Adding Stas as it seems a consistency of localization issue.
Daniel, the issue here is that we expose two strings and use them in three cases: author=Author -- used to show the author of the app when installing it developer=Developer -- used to show the author of the app in the Permission settings *as well as* in Device Information > More > Developer Settings as a button label The desired situation is: author=Author -- used to show the author of the app when installing it *and* to show the author of the app in the Permission settings developer=Developer -- used in Device Information > More > Developer Settings as a button label In order to fix this, we'd need to add the author=Author string to settings.en-US.properties. Currently, it is present only in system.en-US.properties. I suggest we fix this in master and v1-train. Taking this on v1.0.1 would break the string freeze.
