Typo in dansguardian package…



  • In the Help tab, in the "About dansguardian package" section, the subsection should read "Donations" not "Donatios"…



  • I just fixed this up, and some wording of the donation request for dansguardian and pfblocker.
    rcfa: If you haven't done so already, then I suggest you make yourself a Github account. Then you can easily fix these small typos and bits of English grammar and submit pull requests.
    It's great to have an international team producing packages and giving support. The 1st-language English speakers, even if they are not programming types, can help those who struggle more with this horrible English language - I feel sorry for those for whom English is a 2nd or 3rd language, having to write help messages and documentation.

    Hehe, so you feel sorry for me? Native language German, then Latin and French…
    ...of course living in the US for longer than I care to admit has helped my language skills a tad ;)

    Anyway, is there a tutorial on the pfsense github stuff somewhere?

    I do have an account, such that I can do the gitsync stuff, but that's about all I ever did with github. I wouldn't know where to start trying to fix anything and making pull requests, particularly since at this point I haven't gotten the slighted clue as to how the code, files, etc. are even organized.



  • Have a look at http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,47676.0.html
    I do small fixes for typos, little code bugs etc via this method. Lately I have found that the Github online editor used through Firefox does not want to edit large files. I resorted to using IE (which brings up has a different, simpler editing interface on Github) and it works for the bigger files. Github have admitted that there is a problem they are trying to track down in their fancy online editor that appears with Firefox.
    The main pfsense code is in the pfsense repo, filed in directories that match where it is on an install (/etc/inc, /usr/local/www,…)
    The package code is in the pfsense-packages repo, config folder, with a folder for each package.
    I am living and working In Nepal, but from Australia. I see how difficult English is - so many exceptions to every rule. It's a pity that much of the world is having to standardise on such a poorly organised language. So, well done to those who have learnt English later in life.
