Spelling Mistake in 50unattended-upgrades

Bug #209049 reported by Iain Buclaw on 2008-03-30
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Binary package hint: apt

Sorry, I used to correct everyone's bad spelling mistakes for a living.

Automatically is spelled wrong in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50unattended-upgrades.
// Automaticall upgrade packages from these (origin, archive) pairs
Unattended-Upgrade::Allowed-Origins {
        "Ubuntu hardy-security";
// "Ubuntu hardy-updates";

Sorry to be a nag. But getting the Spelling and Grammar correct is good practice; even though it may be in a comment. ;-)


Mark this as low... very low...

You can fix this 5 minutes before the Final CD press of Hardy.

That file also references gutsy, at least on my Hardy system. It should probably be updated to refer to the current release, or some measure taken to make this not problematic in the future.
