Topic: The strength of the word "hardly"

I noticed in the repo recommendations for EOL Fedora:

  • Upgrade heartily recommended (Fedora 12, 11, 10)

  • Upgrade hardly recommended (Fedora 9, 8)

  • Upgrade is mandatory (Fedora <= 7)

The word "hardly" is not really between "heartily" and "mandatory", except perhaps in an archaic sense.  The more common meaning is barely or scarcely.  I think "strongly recommended" would more closely fit your intent.  (Too bad for the homophone pun though...)

Thank's for the explanation.
As english is not my natural lang, it's sometime quite hard for me...
