I'm using "Allow writing of Rows_query_log events into binary log."
as Jon recommended and it's more like a instruction in the context.
[12:34] <jon> daogang: "Allow writing of Rows_query_log events into
binary log." might be a tiny bit better, otherwise -- go with it happy
[12:34] <jon> help info msg approved happy
[12:34] <jon> and thanks for asking!
[12:34] <daogang> jon: Thanks!
[12:36] <daogang> jon: will take it. Luis want replace 'Allow' with
'Allows'. Which one is better from a native speaker?
[12:36] <jon> daogang: 不客气
[12:37] <jon> daogang: oh! well, either is fine: "allow" would be more
like an instruction, "allows" = a statement of fact
[12:37] <jon> unfortunately, I've seen both styles used in our help
messages etc, even though we should really use one or the other consistently
[12:38] <jon> If Luís wants to use "Allows", I have no objection...
[12:38] <daogang> jon: Yes. I think so.
[12:38] *** jon really needs to ask Paul to look into this with dev team
