Description

'First off, hello and apologies if I've submitted my first bug incorrectly - I did the recommended reading and searching but couldn't find this reported yet. Do let me know how I can improve for the next time!'

On /wp-admin/admin.php?import=wordpress - When importing a WXR file, once the file is submitted, the information prompt suggest assigning all posts to "admin". Since we no longer create this named account, perhaps this wording should be changed to eliminate any confusion?

Good catch. What about changing from:
This (original):

To make it easier for you to edit and save the imported content, you may want to reassign the author of the imported item to an existing user of this site. For example, you may want to import all the entries as <code>admin</code>s entries.

To this:

To make it simpler for you to edit and save the imported content, you may want to reassign the author of the imported item to an existing user of this site, such as your primary administrator account.

Great improvement! The new directive is clear, tighter, and "admin"less :)

Changing component back to Import since this is a plugin.

24729.diff patches against the wordpress-importer repo because I couldn't find it in meta or anywhere else.

So true, forgot that WP Import is externalized in a plugin. Thanks for your help and guidance Drew!
