Hi everyone,

I just checked in a couple changes to messages.properties in master.

One thing I'd like to note is what I changed in
e640e0cf6eb9508f74f9bad59519f7189da7d82e.

https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=cloudstack.git;a=blobdiff;f=client/WEB-INF/classes/resources/messages.properties;h=f81a196cf711d709af6a399a6f5e6d275dd7e951;hp=dcbf6c83a24a4cfd6977659d4f531c64c1786edb;hb=e640e0cf6eb9508f74f9bad59519f7189da7d82e;hpb=c0230273cdbdf2558f4a0802d177bd5757de34fd

In this commit, I changed "Setup" to "Set up" where applicable.

This is not necessarily common knowledge among native English speakers, but
words like "Setup" versus "Set up", "Login" versus "Log in", etc. represent
the difference between the noun (or adjective) form versus the verb form.

For example:

Your setup is perfect. // "setup" being used in the noun form (similar to
the word "configuration" here)

Follow the setup instructions. // "setup" being used in the adjective form

versus

I need to set up my system better. // "set up" being used in the verb form

Not a big deal. :) Just something I noticed a while ago and finally
corrected.

The most common one (which I may address later) is "login" versus "log in".

Talk to you later!
