Bug Description

Binary package hint: gbrainy

When gbrainy first starts, you will notice that it says "Memory trainers. To prove your short term memory." I believe it should be- "To IMPROVE your short term memory."

It looks like gbrainy uses a patch system:

$ what-patch
cdbs

You should use this patch system to apply your changes instead of directly modifying the upstream source code. As this is an upstream bug, I would also strongly encourage you to forward the patch upstream to try and get it fixed there. I am unsubscribing ~ubuntu-sponsors while you make this change.

Hello,

I used "to prove" instead of "to improve" because there have been recent discussions in the scientific community regarding if playing brain training software improves cognitive performance. Most of the studies show that there is no or little improvement. I prefer do not to use "improve" for this reason.

If the sentence "Memory trainers. To prove your short term memory" is correct, I would prefer to use it because I have no prove that gbrainy helps to do any improvement in this area.

Thanks,

Jordi,

@Jordi: I guess it does make sense, and I can understand why you would prefer it that way.

I should have checked upstream before patching this. Marking invalid....
