Description Leslie Satenstein 2012-03-22 22:50:06 EDT
Description of problem:

In testing Fedora 17, anaconda presented some phrases that were in need of some corrections. These phrases should be corrected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Fedora 17 alphp
How reproducible:

Every new installation

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
Sentence 1:

Please select the drives you want to install the operating system on ..... as 
well as ...

Sentence 2:
You must select one drive to boot from 

Expected results:
Sentence 1:
Please select the drives onto which you want to install the operating system

Sentence 2:
Select one drive from which to boot  -- or --
Select the operating system boot drive.

Additional info:
I was unable to choose US/Canada English. So I chose British English

There were several poor sentence structures.  I don't mind volunteering to correct the program presentation text, only I know not how to proceed as a volunteer.

If I can help, please email me with some "getting started" information.

This is more a problem with the original strings rather than any translation. Fedora is in string freeze now, so this can't be fixed for F17 (although the en_GB translation can be changed still).

To do this, you'll need to apply to join the Fedora en_GB team[1]. The translation you want is "Anaconda →  f17-branch".

This should be fixed in the new ui included with anaconda-18.3.
