Explanation:
Les messages d'alerte ne sont pas contribuables
=
warning messages are not user modifiable

not sure if there is a better formulation, but 100% sure of the meaning.

error/warning messages are all predefined there are no options for the user to "contribute" to the list of error/warning messages, to add some more of its own creation, it's not a "User Modifiable Software"
