What would you like to be added:

If I have a Namespace that has a ResourceQuota resource and I describe the namespace, I see that CPU and Memory limits/requests are present for the namespace, but a confusing "No resource limits." message is present at the bottom.


$ kubectl describe namespace testnamespace
Name:         testnamespace
Labels:       enhancer=enabled
Status:       Active

Resource Quotas
 Name:            compute-resources
 Resource         Used         Hard
 --------         ---          ---
 limits.cpu       16           48
 limits.memory    17619739Ki   180Gi
 requests.cpu     8375m       24
 requests.memory  10774612736  90Gi

No resource limits.

I would like to see this "No resource limits." message replaced with something that makes it more clear to the user what is missing or not in use (since it's not apparently cpu or memory limits).

From poking around the source code, the message stems from and seems to be intended to describe whether a LimitRange resource is present or not. But from how it reads, it seems to be very vague and a user could easily assume that it refers to cpu and memory for the namespace instead.

Why is this needed:

Users using kubectl to inspect their namespace can be easily confused and either think that their namespace is missing a ResourceQuota or that conflicting information about CPU and memory resource limits for the namespace is being presented.
