You don't want to "wait in seconds"..:-). Also, I don't think it's worth mentioning that a time has to be entered as an integer (at least here). Also, the synopsis should have a final colon as this is a prompt. My proposal: _Description: Waiting time (in seconds) for link detection: Please enter the maximum time you would like to wait for network link detection. > Template: netcfg/bad_link_wait_timeout > Type: error > _Description: Invalid waiting time > - The waiting time you provided is not an integer. The time must be provided > - in seconds, as a single decimal integer. > + The value you have provided is not valid. Only numeric characters are > + accepted. The time must be provided in seconds, as a single decimal integer. _Description: Invalid network link detection waiting time The value you have provided is not valid. The maximum waiting time (in seconds) for network link detection must be a positive integer. If it is decimal, it can have decimal values such as "3.5". As you don't want this, just mention that it should be a positive integer. Let's specify what we're talking about in the synopsis. That's important if the invalid value was preseeded as this error will seem to pop up from nowhere when the value is checked.
