[TAF] templates://watchdog/{templates}

The watchdog package introduced new or modified debconf
templates. This is the perfect moment for a review to help the package
maintainer following the general suggested writing style and track
down typos and errors in the use of English language.

If someone wants to pick up this review, please answer to this mail,
in the mailing list, with an [ITR] (Intent To Review) label.

The templates file is attached.

To propose the file you reviewed for peer review, please send a [RFR]
(Request For Review) mail with the reviewed file attached...then a few
days later, when no more contributions come, a summary mail with a
[LCFC] (Last Chance For Comments) label.

Finally, after no more comments coming to the LCFC mail, you can send
the reviewed templates file as a bug report against the package.

Then, please notify the list with a last mail using a [BTS] label
with the bug number.

Helping the package maintainer to deal with induced translation
updates at that moment will be nice. If you're not comfortable with
that part of the process, please hand it off to a translator.


Template: watchdog/run
Type: boolean
Default: true
_Description: Start watchdog at boot time?
 Please specify whether watchdog should be started as part of the boot
 process. This can be changed later by editing /etc/default/watchdog.

Template: watchdog/restart
Type: boolean
Default: false
_Description: Restart watchdog on upgrades?
 If your kernel is configured with the CONFIG_WATCHDOG_NOWAYOUT option,
 restarting watchdog will cause a spurious reboot (the kernel will think
 the watchdog daemon crashed).

Template: watchdog/module
Type: string
Default: none
_Description: Load watchdog module?
 Do you want the watchdog init script to preload a module for your watchdog
 driver before starting watchdog? The module "softdog" should work on all
 installations. If you don't want the script to load a module use "none".

Description: software watchdog
 The watchdog program writes to /dev/watchdog every ten seconds.
 If the device is open but not written to within a minute the machine
 will reboot -- a feature available when "software watchdog" support
 is compiled into the kernel.
 The ability to reboot will depend on the state of the machine
 and interrupts.
