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



If you don't agree, what would you prefer? I have already mentioned two
suggestions to address the inconsistency.

This is not about "Pinned" vs. "Favorites". It's about "Pin/Pinned" vs.
"Add/Added" and "Dash" vs. "Dock".

My (latest) idea is to accept "Pin to Dock" as a minimum change given
the current code. Another possible solution would be to keep the 22.04
solution, i.e. use the original Ubuntu terms all over also going

Yes, for those who choose a GNOME session. My concern is the Ubuntu

Something should be done. Getting rid of the the inconsistent
terminology, in one way or another, is not a wishlist request. The
inconsistency is a bug, which gets extra obvious when you deal with docs
and translations.

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.
