Description Matt Wilson 2003-02-02 17:07:05 EST
The window "(foo)" is not responding.
Force this application to exit?
(Any open documents will be lost.)


not sure what's better, but I don't like the current wording.
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2003-02-02 17:24:47 EST
We don't change strings in Red Hat patches unless it's very important - needs to
be resolved UPSTREAM

String freeze was 3 days ago though for RH and a month ago upstream.
Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2003-02-03 18:14:59 EST
Can you be more detailed about what you don't like about the wording?
Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2003-02-03 19:25:54 EST
"Force this application to exit?" is a run-on.  I suggest:

The window "(foo)" is not responding.
Would you like to force this application
to exit?

Warning: If you force this application
to exit any open documents will be lost.

That seems like a "Juno CEO" change to me.
