Bug Description

Binary package hint: update-manager

In the System -> Preferences and System -> Administration menus, there's no need to repeat terms as 'options', 'preferences', 'manager', etc. for each config tool. For consistency with most GNOME tools, we should only use as label the part of the system/desktop that the tool will deal with. This way, we can explain better what the tools do.

Examples of right labels: "Appearance" - "Screensaver" - "Shared Folders" - "Software Sources"

We should correct:
- "Updates manager" -> "Updates" or "Software updates" or "System updates"...
- "Restricted manager" -> "Restricted hardware" or "Restricted drivers" or "Non-free hardware"...
- "Keyring manager" -> "Keyrings" or "Passwords keyrings"...
- "Bluetooth preferences" -> "Bluetooth"...
- "SCIM Input Method Setup" -> "SCIM Input Method" or better explained...
- "Indexing Preferences" (Tracker) -> "Indexing" or "Files indexing" or "Desktop search"...
- "Encryption Preferences" -> "Encryption" or anything...
- "Power manager" -> "Power" is a little short, maybe "Power management", "Power and standby"...

Others can be left as they are (but we maystill find better):
- "Network tools" (because it's not the "Network" administration item, meant to configure settings)
- "System logs viewer" (same idea, only to see them)
- "System monitor" (idem)
- "Synaptic package manager" (a well-known app, one of the ways to manage packages)

This patch for Restricted Manager changes the label to "Restricted Drivers" (you may prefer "Restricted Hardware Drivers" by the way).

This bug was fixed in the package update-manager - 1:0.87.11

---------------
update-manager (1:0.87.11) hardy; urgency=low

  * DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeControler.py:
    - when upgrading without network and with a empty sources.list,
      do not ask to add network sources
  * DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeCache.py:
    - do not crash if lookupRecords() failed (LP: #199482)
  * UpdateManager/UpdateManager.py:
    - use absolute path when calling gksu (LP: #194166),
      Thanks to Mihai Varzaru and James Westby
  * data/update-manager.desktop.in:
    - improve consistency with the rest of gnome (LP: #150205)
  * DistUpgrade/DistUpgradeViewKDE.py:
    - do no longer use konsole during upgrades but use a dumb
      terminal instead that only supports basic editing
    - log terminal activity to /var/log/dist-upgrade/term.log
