Now it's in CVS…

UI exposed in gnome-power-manager

Any comments on the language used in the warning dialogue? Legally I don't think I can use the words explode, overheat or fire. Thanks.

One thought on “Now it's in CVS…”

  1. We're I in your position, I might consider even going further and say something like, “you can take advantage of” or “you might be eligble for a recall.” They might even think the word “risk” implies some kind of danger. Not that an exploding battery would be dangerous…
