[Bug 1973474] Re: Rename "Pin to Dash" to "Pin to Dock"


I'm not sure I agree with this, but do appreciate the wording is
confusing in a world of dash and dock.

* Regular users are less likely to understand "pinned" as much as "favourites".
* Power users may have no dock, only a dash, and so the existing wording is correct.
* It's a patch we would have to maintain.

** Changed in: gnome-shell (Ubuntu)
   Importance: Medium => Wishlist

Bug description:
  I noticed this commit:


  If I understand it correctly, it means that we will use the label "Pin
  to Dash" instead of "Add to Favorites" as from Ubuntu 22.10. To be
  consistent I suggest that we rename the thing in all contexts, and
  hence replace "Dock" with "Dash" in all affected strings in the
  Appearance section in g-c-c.
