Re: [Bug 612318] [NEW] Some glossary entires are unclear
More important is the second one, because translated into Spanish (I'm a
Spanish translator of the Ubuntu manual) it could sounds like if the
.deb files have similar qualities of some autoexecutable Windows
binaries (click and run, instead of click to install). By my way, I
already translated this part with a better meaning, with lessing
confusion in mind... Just check it out into the Spanish branch of the
Ubuntu Manual :)
Some glossary entires are unclear

Status in Ubuntu Manual: New
This bug is in revision 143 of the e2 branch, but I'm sure exists in the others too.
A good number of the glossary entires are a bit confusing. Here's an example.
When you minimize an open application, it sits in an applet on a panel. If you click on a minimized applications panel button, it will then be restored to its normal state and allow you to interact with it.
Here's what I think would be a better definition for minimize, with no typo in it.
When you minimize an open application, the window will no longer be shown. If you click on a minimized application's panel button, it will then be restored to its normal state and allow you to interact with it.
Here's another example, for package:
Debian package files that hold the core information and code for applications to run.
An alternative might be:
Packages contain software in a ready-to-install format. Packages have a .deb extension in Ubuntu.
