Hello all,

I'm editing release notes and have a list of corrected bugs that are
written like this:

"When an entry was copied, it wasn't possible to record its name using
the name recorder."

It could also read:

"When an entry is copied, it is now possible to record its name..."

I've seen both styles used, but am wondering if one is better than the

(BTW, not all the bugs are that simple and I'm not sure they could all
be re-written that way.)
