Typo or grammar error in messages
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:58 EST
Description of problem:
In many messages of desktop-file-utils there are grammar or typo
errors in messages. The word "contain" is used where "contains"
(singular) is appropriate.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. grep contain src/eggdesktopentries.c
_("desktop entry contain line '%s' which is not "
_("desktop entry contains line '%s' which is not "
I'm reporting this here since both authors named in the AUTHORS file
have @redhat.com e-mail addresses. ;-) So I thought this might be
as upstream as it gets.
Version 0.10 is available (you should know best ;->). Anyway, I'm
attaching patches against 0.9 and against 0.10.

Adding authors to Cc:. Hope you don't mind...
Did this fall through the cracks, or did it get fixed upstream?
I can find no newer version than the reported 0.10 upstream. There is no
approriate commit in CVS either (there's been hardly any action in CVS at all).
So I guess this report is still valid.
There is no category for desktop-file-utils in freedesktop.org's bugzilla
(https://bugs.freedesktop.org/). As I originally explained, I even pretty much
consider this "upstream". ;-)
This bug ticket apparently never got out of the status NEW, and the latest
desktop-file-utils in Fedora devel (0.10-2) also still contains this bug, so it
wasn't silently fixed either. It was either ignored or it fell through the
Thanks for noting, Ray.
I've commited your patch upstream. It should land in rawhide the next time
desktop-file-utils is released.
