For instance, it recommands avoiding the use of constructions such as
"if you answer no" to boolean templates....and gives the reasons for

It also recommends the use of "open prompts" for string tempaltes
short descriptions, such as "HTTP proxy (leave blank for none):" or "IP
address the daemon will listen to:" rather than "question-style"
prompts. This is indeed not because "question-style" is wrong but
rather a matter of general consistency.

I also have a few typo comments:

-Internet is most often written with an uppercase "I"
-protocol names such as "HTTP" are most often written uppercase also


Un saludo.
