Hello,

Thanks for the approval. We will upload the package early today.

This upload will contain yet another string exception :( Really sorry,
but we want Ubuntu Friendly to work as good as possible when launching.

   https://bugs.launchpad.net/checkbox/+bug/861844

We have received feedback from the community that one of the core
questions that we ask the user, and used to calculate the rating of a
system, is confusing.

We have added a string that tries to clarify it.

Thanks for your consideration,
Ara.
