Description Matt Reid 2012-08-24 15:37:04 UTC
Description of problem:
The current titles displayed in rhn_register don't follow standard title capitalization, only the first word is capitalized. This also applies to the window title.

Window Title - Registering for software updates

Screen Titles -
Registering for software updates
Choose an update location
Enter your account information
Select operating system release
Create your system profile
Review system subscription details
Finish setting up software updates

Updating them to:

Window Title - System Registration

Screen Titles -
Set Up Software Updates
Choose Service
Red Hat Account
Operating System Release Version
Create Profile
Review Subscription
Updates Configured

would bring them in line with what is used in firstboot, and follow capitalization conventions.

Comment 2 Matt Reid 2012-08-24 19:28:10 UTC
Looks like there's a few more:

If you're registered to Subscription Management, you get a dialog pop-up saying your system is already registered, with a window title of "System already registered", that should get capitalized to be "System Already Registered".

If you cancel the process, you get a dialog with a window title of "software updates setup unsuccessful". This should either get capitalized to be "Software Updates Setup Unsuccessful" or "Software Updates Not Set Up" to more closely match the initial "Set Up Software Updates" title.

Same for the screen title:
software updates setup unsuccessful

and the button text of:
Exit software update setup

Should be just "Exit". It looks like having the long button text ended up changing the button structure/layout of the dialog when compared to the successful dialog's buttons. I don't think the context of "software update setup" is necessary in the button.

Are there any other variants I'm skipping?
