Bug#861620: release-notes: some global reviewing
While reviewing the german translation of the release-notes, I found some
glitches in the english original as well:
chapter 2.2: what's new: software updates
the table mentions MySQL as "being upgraded", while the version in
Stretch is "removed".
So MySQL has to be deleted from this table.
chapter 4.4.5: upgrading the system
here installation of CDs is used several times. Should be changed
into CD/DVD/BD (and from there on use simply "disc").
chapter 5.1.4: Deprecated components for Stretch
"Users will need to migrate to other alternatives to prevent trouble when updating to 10."
Should better read "when updating to Debian 10" at the end.
appendix A.2: Checking your sources list
About checking the sources.list before (!) upgrading to Stretch, this contains:
"If any of the lines in your /etc/apt/sources.list refer to 'stable', you
are effectively already “using” stretch."
I think, this can hardly be misunderstood as "The upgrade to stretch is
already completed on my machine", at least from beginners.
My proposal would be:
"If any of the lines in your /etc/apt/sources.list refer to 'stable',
it effectively points to Stretch already."
Additionally, this chapter mentions lines with
in sources.list, which should be changed from stable to jessie.
I propose to add a note like:
"Lines in sources.list starting with "deb ftp:" and pointing to
debian.org addresses have to be changed into "deb http:" lines.
See <chapter about ftp services shutdown>.
I have prepared a patch for all the above.
