Description Moritz Barsnick 2005-01-11 05:11:00 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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. grep contain src/eggdesktopentries.c
Actual results:
_("desktop entry contain line '%s' which is not "

Expected results:
_("desktop entry contains line '%s' which is not "

Additional info:
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.

Hi Moritz,

Did this fall through the cracks, or did it get fixed upstream?
Comment 5 Moritz Barsnick 2005-08-31 12:36:23 EDT
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 
cracks. *shrug*

Thanks for noting, Ray.
Comment 6 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-08-31 16:14:43 EDT

I've commited your patch upstream.  It should land in rawhide the next time
desktop-file-utils is released.
