Help text about derivatives unclear

Bug #203937 reported by James Westby on 2008-03-19
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
debian-installer (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: debian-installer


In the boot menu help it says '"Ubuntu" may be replaced with other related
operating system names. This help text is generic.'

When I read this during testing I thought it was a suggestion to derivatives
to customise the menu, in particular due to the word "replaced".

My suggestion for alternative wording is

'You can read "Ubuntu" as the name of any other related operating system...'

although I don't think it's brilliant.
