I have items that can be installed and uninstalled. I have a list that contains all the items that were installed one more time than they were uninstalled.
My first guess to describe the list is: "The list contains items that were installed once more than uninstalled". To myself that sounds wrong. It sounds like a literal translation from german (I'm german) but I can't think of a way that sounds right.
How would you say this correctly?
EDIT: The phrase is a comment in source code. At first sight the code looks more complicated than it needs to be. The complete comment is:
remove() (in contrast to removeAll()) only removes one instance of a component if the component is in the list multiple times. This results in a list that only contains components that were installed once more than uninstalled.
