    en_GB users, what should "Trash" be called?

    The Ubuntu-l10n-en-gb team (of which I am a member) voted (with a majority of 10 votes) to change what was called "Wastebasket" (Trash in en_US) to Deleted Items (folder) in Edgy and above. What do you think of this?

    I sent an e-mail to the en-gb mailing list expressing my concerns:

    First of all, I do not like the changing of Wastebasket to Deleted Items. I think that neither of them are perfect, but Wastebasket is slightly better as it is less awkward, and smaller. Also, there is a ambiguity in choosing either "Deleted items" or "Deleted items folder" for a specific string. I also think that consistency with other Linuxes is paramount. A poll of 30 people shouldn't decide a substantial change in localisation policy.

    I realise that it's too late to back out of it for Edgy, but I think we should revert back to Wastebasket for Edgy+1 until a consensus is found on a better phrase (approved by gnome-uk too).
    Just to clear up, the GNOME en_GB team do not approve of this change, but they are not happy with Wastebasket.

    I'm running edgy and i've still got "Trash"... i think i'm on en_GB.

    Who really cares what its named

    It still works the same... i'm sure time could be better allocated elsewhere.
    Every time you install Jaunty, a kitten........ wait sorry what year is this again?

    I always thought Windows had it right with 'Recycle Bin' - I can re-use the files or delete them, but calling it Recycle Bin may not be possible. I don't like 'Wastebasket' personally, 'Deleted Items' sounds a lot better.

    I (and the other ubuntu-l10n-en-gb members) have the power to make this happen, so watch out.

    The early Edgys had this problem. (not from Knot-3 onwards I think)

    Oops, I should have added "I don't care" choice on the poll.
