Nice news. Since your edit summary [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=ArchWiki%3ANews&diff=351745&oldid=342545] suggests wording ambivalence already: I was wondering whether 'to attack' could become 'to progress' (the progress) and 'to defend' -> 'to sustain' (the sustainability) altogether. Just a thought to keep the quest for world dominance in the backhand :) --[[User:Indigo|Indigo]] ([[User talk:Indigo|talk]]) 17:23, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Nice news. Since your edit summary [1] suggests wording ambivalence already: I was wondering whether 'to attack' could become 'to progress' (the progress) and 'to defend' -> 'to sustain' (the sustainability) altogether. Just a thought to keep the quest for world dominance in the backhand :) --Indigo (talk) 17:23, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, more than ambivalence, I was worried about the BE/AE spelling of defen{s,c}e, but I think the one with the "s" is AE, and in the rest of the post there's also the AE "favorite", as opposed to the BE "favourite"; the wiki seems to be more AE-oriented (InternationaliZation and so on...), so maybe "defenSe" is ok.
