Some descriptions of actions/tasks in progress currently miss an ellipsis at the end.

The attached patch adds ellipses where approrpiate.

I also fixed some capitalizations here and there.

  • Priority changed from normal to low
  • Severity changed from normal to minor
  • Type changed from defect (bug) to enhancement

  • Type changed from enhancement to defect (bug)

I think this is a bug, not an enhancement, because the missing ellipses produce incosistency in the UI, which is a bug. Some descriptions use ellipses, others not.

(If no description at all ended with an ellipsis, then adding ellipses would be an enhancement.)

As the patch is 3-months old now, I would like to check again before it is considered for commit.

Inconsistency is a style deficiency, not a functional bug, so tickets like this should be labeled as enhancements. If the language actually described the wrong action or something, that would be an example of a text 'bug.'
