cofusing the user who wants to rip music from their CDs

Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

When I right click on the CD in the left pane, I get "extract to library" (extract.png screenshot).

When I hover over the CD icon, I get "copy to library" "copy to library.png screen host).

In my opinion, neither of them makes sense. They both do the same thing so why can't we name them properly. Copy to library is misleading. It should be rip .. itunes uses that terms, why can't we use it as well. less confusing this way.

I believe "Copy tracks to the library" is ok. But it should be consistent, which means the right-click menu should say "copy to library". I guess upstream should take care of this.
