Could be, but the word 'configuring' is not used in the text so this is
not relevant here.

The end result of the review is in the package. The process that led to it
is not really on topic here.

You snipped the part where I proposed that the way to continue towards
resolution is that you provide an alternative that we can talk about.
Please provide that alternative text. If you're unsure about some aspect,
just make an assumption about what you think is meant; I'll catch it if
it's not right.

All previous discussions haven't gotten us any nearer to a resolution.
Please do not follow up to this issue without a concrete wording proposal.
