A list of nodes marked for display on the front page.
We should change ‘marked’ to ‘promoted’. It's more consistent with the checkbox label and less ambiguous.
A block and a page with recent comments.
We are reiterating information that is provided in another column. We don't do this anywhere else and this requires the user to update the description if they add another display.
Customize the default taxonomy/term display.
I assume this will change once it replaces the core output? Either way I think adding ‘vocabulary’ and replacing the ‘/’ with ‘or’ would be more descriptive. We could probably rewrite this description to be more descriptive of the view itself, for example: 'a list of content contained within a taxonomy term or vocabulary'? We would also need to update the title to be more generic or include vocabularies.
A list of months that link to content for that month.
I feel like this should be more consistent with Glossary.
A list of all content, by letter.
I only included this for reference but it's worth pointing out that four of the descriptions start with ‘A list...’ and three do not. All of these views are lists, we should decide whether this information is redundant or not.
A list of other content items which have a link to the content item.
The description here is from the perspective of someone viewing a resulting page of the view (node/%/backlinks), hence ‘the content item’ seems to assume that the user has a particular node in mind. If you take the perspective of some viewing the view edit page, which is responsible for creating every resulting page, I think you would end up with something similar to my suggestion for Taxonomy above: 'a list of content which have a link to a content item'
