Bug Description


Fixing this bug in Hardy and Karmic requires the similar string changes as applied in Lucid: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-doc/ubuntu-docs/lucid/revision/399 - bzr patches for Karmic and Hardy available on request.

Impact: I believe the string changes require re-translation in Rosetta.

Mateusz, thank you for your report. This has been fixed in the Lucid development branch, rev 399. Does anybody think we should SRU this bug for Hardy? I think it may be worth it, esp. given that it is in the serverguide.

I just realized that this applies to all (pre-Lucid?) versions of server guide...
If you wonder if it's worth - my TechUniversity gives courses in UNIX administration and we use this tutorial during classes. This typo gave me and fellow studens some headache. Please spare next semester students this pain...

I don't think that this warrants the pain of breaking translations and undergoing SRU -- after all, everyone who knows a bit about IP addresses knows that an IP has four parts, so this should be easily identifyable as a typo.

Thanks for posting, Martin. It's OK by me not to SRU this bug, please close out the process if there is anything else that needs to be done.
