Comment (by kebbet):

 Replying to [comment:9 joedolson]:
 > Regarding the copy change - while WordPress is definitely not very
 consistent about capitalization in buttons, this should definitely
 *either* be initial caps are title caps: `Change permalink structure` or
 `Change Permalink Structure`. I'd root for the latter.
 > I do think that the text change is clearer. I suspect that the
 target=_blank is in some ways associated with the text used - 'Change
 Permalink' gives the impression that it's a button that will execute a
 change to the permalink for this post/media item. 'Change Permalink
 Structure' makes it clearer that you're making a larger, global change.
 > Thinking historically, I'd guess that this was a problem prior to
 WordPress 4.2, when WordPress switched to using search engine friendly
 permalinks by default.

 As a non native US-english speaker/reader, the capitalization thing is a
 mystery to me. That said, I've updated the patch to all caps now. :)
