While updating the database, the 'database info' debug menu shows a progress value that is stuck to -1%, and not updated, while scanning the drive for files. If it is not possible to know the actual progress of the scan, would'nt it be better to just remove this piece of info ?
This task depends upon

The debug screen is not for normal users (note the "keep out"). Information there may or may not be functional, or may change what its displaying, depending on the needs of the developers at the time.

The "keep out" only applies when using english language AFAIC. It's not written in the German translation for sure.

The "keep out" *applies* universally. If the translations are out of date, people who speak them should fix them, but it should still be kept out of by non-devs whether they speak English or not. The name "debug" alone should imply at least to casual users that it's not a normal portion of the program. Or is that improperly translated too (perhaps to a word that lacks the connotation that it does in English)?

the german translation says "Entwicklerbereich" (could be re-translated to english as "developers corner" which is definitely clear enough to understand that this isn't meant for developers. Feel free to improve the translation.

The german translation doesn't have the "keep out" translated to keep the menu item short. "Entwicklerbereich" is already quite long and almost fills the entire screen on small screens and/or big font(s) (not to speak about the charcell display) so the rest was left out on purpose. Of course things changed but is it really necessary to translate that ("Zutritt verboten" doesn't sound nice either and makes the line longer and longer...)?

i think this can be closed - the debug menu is for developers and is not supposed to provide helpful informations for normal users ;)
