Very minor typo during installation messages

Very minor typo during installation messages

Postby eLPuSHeR » 06.11.2014, 15:40

I get this very minor typo in WGET output:

Cleaning up client directory for .NET Frameworks 3.5 SP1 and 4.x...
Verifying digital file signatures for .NET Frameworks' installation files...

I think it should be (.NET Framework) for first instance and (.NET Framework's) for the second instance.

I don't want to sound like a grammar nazi, though. I am not a native English speaking person. :mrgreen:

Hi eLPuSHeR,

as I read it, the word "Framework" is used in plural form in both occurrences, because they are referring to more than one version. So, the writing is correct in those cases.

However, somebody could argue that ".NET Framwork" is a name and cannot be put in to plural forms. But that would go too far... :twisted: :roll:

Greetings

I think you are right. It was that apostrophe that seemed weird to me.

Speaking of grammar & syntax, I'm not aware of obvious spelling errors in WSUSOU, just one in WGet.
