User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en; rv: Gecko/20080528 Fedora/2.24.3-4.fc10 Epiphany/2.22 Firefox/3.0

This is more a of suggestion. In some gnome-main-menu entries you have some terms, which are not translated because there is no proper portuguese translation for them and it's common to use the english word instead, you have 'Firewall' and 'Senha de Root' (root password). I think the '' signs don«t look very good in a menu like this, although I agree they can be used in general text.

So my suggestion is to remove the '' signs from these menu entries.


Reproducible: Always

Adding José Pires (Portuguese maintainer) to CC.

I think you can fix it quickly by reporting it to gnome-main-menu upstream bug tracker:

Comment 3 António Lima 2009-06-13 08:18:57 EDT
In the bug report I was referring to Fedora specific string like "Firewall" and "Root password" which I think are not present in the gnome-menus module. That's why I didn't report in GNOME Bugzilla right away.

Now in Fedora 11 I see that the "Firewall" menu entry does not have the '' signs, but the "Root password"(Portuguese: Senha de 'Root') still has them.

Ping: José, could you take a look on this?
Comment 5 Piotr Drąg 2009-08-18 18:38:44 EDT
Adding another Portuguese maintainer to CC.
Comment 6 Piotr Drąg 2009-09-12 16:07:40 EDT
Six months with no reaction from Portuguese maintainers, so closing this as WONTFIX.

Sorry for the late answer. Things look good now.
