hi david:

i clicked on the link above.
here's what i think. the message is very long. it needs to be trimmed and
edited from an effectiveness point of view.

my experience in editing tells me that sentences need to be short while
conveying meaning as intended.

the part that threw caution, doubt, uncertainty in me was: "Please take
care of all that..."  IMHO, reconstructing that sentence will make the
message more effective.

i'm too new to debian and am a linux newbie. i don't know how to file a bug.
in any case is this considered a bug?
if you need my help in combining the 2 cases and coming out with appropriate
wording, i'll work on that and post it to the group.
please let me know if you need my help in proposing a new message string.

linux newbie
