I've changed both slightly different in version 56 of Overview.

"Read more about Redmine features." ==> "Read more about Redmine’s features."

I've left it as is was for now. I actually don't think that's incorrect. Although I might be wrong here since English is a second language of mine. Are you a native English speaker? Can anyone chime in here?

Thanks. BTW, it should be s/slightly different/slightly differently/.

"Read more about Redmine features." ==> "Read more about Redmine’s features."

I'm not a native English speaker, but I still believe that is incorrect. I'll try to solicit some advice from ##English on Freenode.

Thanks! Never actually thought about that difference... :-S

Please do so. I'm supporting linguistical improvements in Redmine wiki (at least for the "supported" pages).

OK, here is what the ##English people say:

<rindolf> Hi all. http://www.redmine.org/issues/9633 - is "Read more about Redmine features." 
correct? I think it should be "Read more about Redmine's features.". Can you please comment?

<Elench> I certainly prefer the latter
<enchilado> I think the former would put more emphasis on the "features" part
<enchilado> and the latter on the Redmine part

* Maxdamantus thinks otherwise.
<enchilado> but I'm not sure why I think that

--> panhl (taCo@123.144.19.206) has joined ##English
<Maxdamantus> I think in text "Redmine's features" has more emphasis on the features bit.
<-- JSharpe_ has quit (Read error: Connection reset by peer)
<enchilado> hmm
<Maxdamantus> in "Redmine features" I think automatically of the two words being relatively similar in importance.
<rindolf> Well you can say "Read more about the Redmine features." 
<enchilado> well, say this was on a website and you were going to have other pages
<enchilado> if it was the former, I would expect to see the other pages being the features of other things
<Maxdamantus> That one imo defaults to more emphasis on "features".
<enchilado> while with the latter, I would expect to see the other pages discuss parts of Redmine that weren't features
--> JSharpe (jamie@5ad1d7fa.bb.sky.com) has joined ##English
<enchilado> "these features are Redmine", is how I read the former
<cntrational> enchilado: actually, I'd think the other way <__<
<cntrational> the former is more emphasis on "Redmine", the latter on "features" 
<cntrational> rindolf: but grammatically, it's ok
