    Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from default

    Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.

    ---------
    I assume:

    a. "Where" means "in which" = "in the configuration options for the best compatibility".

    b. "They" refers to "the configuration options".

    c. It is better to say "Only configuration options for the best compatibility where the options deviate from defaults are listed".

    What do you think?

    Why do you think it needs to change? You, a non-native speaker understand it. Native speakers should be able to understand it. It's succinct- and best- as written.

    I now prefer this one:

    Only the configuration options for the best compatibility which deviate from defaults are listed.

    I would think mine is better than the original. What do you think?
