#4568 new defect

DatabaseWarning too OSM-specific, impossible to disable ("changes are saved to the main OpenStreetMap database")

Reported by: Janschejbal Owned by: potlatch-dev@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: potlatch2 Version:
Keywords: Cc:

Description

The save dialog (SaveDialog.mxml) contains a hardcoded warning (databaseWarning):

    Your changes are saved to the main OpenStreetMap database for everyone to 
    see. This is not your own private map. Please don't save test changes 
    or edits for personal use only.

I couldn't find any way to disable or customize this. When using Potlatch as an editor for custom instances, this warning is extremely confusing. Additionally, it seems that this warning is not localized.

Please allow some easy way (e.g. a flash var) to customize/disable this warning.

As the coding guidelines say "Both Potlatch 2 and Halcyon can be deployed locally (i.e. not on openstreetmap.org), and indeed can talk to databases other than the main OSM instance. So don't be too OSM-specific", I am labeling this as defect.

Yep, it needs to be localisable but I can't remember how one sets this up. Can anyone who knows how the localisation works explain better than me?
