#20327 closed Cleanup/optimization (fixed)

Correct "it's" to "its" when used possessively

Reported by: thomas.thurman@… Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: 1.4
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no

Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no

Description

Several places in the documentation use "it's" to mean "of it". These places should be corrected to "its".

Patch here:
https://github.com/tthurman/django/commit/c91e4e9ca9cf06c4b01241efc78d91cc07e265e0
(should I submit this as a pull request?)

I deliberately did not fix this:
./releases/1.3-alpha-1.txt:Django will use it's own bundled version of unittest2
because it appears to be only of historical interest.

  • Needs documentation unset

  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Accepted

Yes, you can submit a pull request for such cases. And we fix typos even in historical documents :)

(Opening a ticket is useful to keep track of a pull request when it isn't merged quickly, because GitHub's UI doesn't scale as well as Trac.)

If you'd like to make a PR, please go ahead, and I'll merge it. If you don't care, since the patch is trivial, I'll just commit the diff. Let me know!
