Subject Re: BugID 27282 Misspelling: s/occured/occurred/g

Perhaps we need to appoint a committee to research spellings and 
spelling variants. Then we could foot note all words with variants for 
clarity.

Honestly we should pick a single reference and a single locale and 
standardize on that. That way when a bug like this comes in we check the 
reference, and say yeah or nay without 6-10 emails of discussion. Given 
this discussion and the earlier mis pelt (my spell checker objects 
without the space :) ) discussion, I think we should spend more time 
coding and less time spelling things out.
