Translators, this changes a string on the desktop file's comment field:

Original: "Test and report system information"
Change: "Test your system and submit results to the Ubuntu Friendly

Translators, this adds a string:

"Warning: Some tests could cause your system to freeze or become
unresponsive. Please save all your work and close all other running
applications before beginning the testing process."

I've replied on the bugs and given a +1 to the changes, as I think they
make sense: the first one to ensure discoverability of Ubuntu Friendly
and the second one to present the user a critical piece of info.

Please upload asap, so that the new translations template makes it to
Launchpad in time for translators to translate the new string.
