Re: Proof read updated ejabberd debconf template

Hello Justin, one more question, should I say something in the debcobf template instead of "(lowercase)" something like "your input if containing uppercase characters will be converted to lowercase"? What would be your suggestion?

I think you still want "hostname".  For things like Jabber (and the
XMPP RFCs) that's the word used for "however much of an alphanumeric
label you need to identify the server"; you rarely need to distinguish
hostnames from domain names unless you're specifically talking about
JBR     with qualifications in linguistics, experience as a Debian
        sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
