[jitsi-dev] please clean up DNSSEC warning message


#1

Hi, I'm translating Jitsi strings and just stumbled upon string 1242,
util.dns.DNSSEC_WARNING:

"<html><div width="600">{0} has tried to connect to the server at
<b>{1}</b>, which is a domain that carries a strong protection called
DNSSEC. The information that {0} has obtained from the DNS server is
not in accordance with the information DNSSEC provides about this
domain. <br><br><b>This should not happen unless very serious mistakes
were made at {1}, and it is a very strong indication that something is
seriously wrong with the trustworthiness of your network
connection.</b> <br><br>If you are on someone else''s internet
connection (like a WiFi hotspot) or if there are special circumstances
that make you distrust your regular internet provider, we strongly
advise you to stop using it immediately and look for an alternative
internet access point. When you are safely connected to another
network, the problem should be resolved automatically. If this is not
the case, contact your service provider to inform them about the
issue. </div></html>"

Can someone who knows how DNSSEC works please rephrase this to make it
a bit clearer as to what is going on here? As it currently stands, it
tells people:

1. Very serious mistakes were made by someone else
AND
2. There is something seriously wrong with the trustworthiness of your
network connection

These don't logically flow (i.e. #1 is independent of #2 but are not
worded as such) and will likely confuse/scare people for no reason.

Should this AND be an OR?

Thanks

Alex

Not exactly. But it could be changed to:

This should not happen unless very serious mistakes were made at {1}. It is therefore a very strong indication that something is seriously wrong with the trustworthiness of your network connection.

WDYT?

As for scaring, the point is that #1 really should not happen. If it does, then the domain-admin has not signed his zone correctly.

Thanks

Yes, this is better.

Let me know when this is changed on http://translate.jitsi.org/ and
I'll update the translation accordingly.

Cheers
