Description

The use of English language is not clear / precise / appropriate leading to potential confusion amongst users regarding the use and configuration of 'change messages'.

For example the default text to display known as "explanation to display" is:
"Please enter a message explaining the reason for this change"

Better:
"Please enter a reason explaining this change"

Also 'explanation to display' may well be better expressed as 'help text'.

Thus if 'messages' becomes 'reasons' then one would perhaps better say 'enable change audit|control' rather than 'enable change messages'.

This impacts all text referring to change messages.

It seems to me that there are two issues here, given the impact and priorities:

  1. The wording for the default text to display known as "explanation to display" that could be improved to be more clear / precise / appropriate. Let's use Ed's suggestion, "Please enter a reason explaining this change"
  2. The name of the "change message" feature itself. I'm not sure what it should be renamed to, yet.

I think that 1 can be considered a bug fix and changed ASAP in all applicable versions.

I think that 2 is more impacting and should be a user story for a new release (2.9?).

François, can you create the corresponding tickets and assign work please?
