Poor use of language in openssh-client key update dialog

Bug #230929 reported by bcreitz on 2008-05-16
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ssl-cert (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: openssh-client

I accept the update for openssh-client. A dialog pops up and says:

"A security certificate which was automatically created for your local system needs to be replaced due to a flaw which renders it insecure. This will be done automatically. If you don't know anything about this, you can safely ignore this message."

"... you can safely ignore this message" might mean "you can hit cancel" to a lot of people who "don't know anything about this."

The message would be better off without that whole "If you don't know anything" line.

Changed in openssh:
importance: Undecided → Wishlist
status: New → Confirmed

Could you please review the templates in Intrepid, as a language
review was recently performed on them, and so the wording
should be much better.



Changed in ssl-cert:
status: Confirmed → Fix Released
