#4255 closed enhancement (fixed)

Bad language in page-about-philosophy.php

Reported by: meinmycell's profile meinmycell Owned by: tellyworth's profile tellyworth
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: General Keywords: has-patch


A message string in page-about-philosophy.php is bad language, even in context with the preceding strings. The sentence

"The most responsible use of WordPress community resources would therefore be put to best use by emphasizing high quality contributions that embrace the freedoms provided by the GPL."

is not good English, and should be rephrased. I suggest something like

"The WordPress community should emphasize that the freedoms in the GPL help provide high quality software."

although I cannot guarantee that this is what the original author tried to say.
