"Other" Maintenance Light

The other day, I got the oil changed, tires rotated, battery cleaned, and air filter replaced in my '08 Altima, and I am familiar with the most of the maintenance lights and indicators for my car. But just yesterday, about 300 miles after the service I had done earlier in the week, the "Maintenance Other" light came on, and I can't find anything in the manual or online that elaborates on this notification. Aside from the work I had done, the only thing I've noticed recently is a small puddle of clear fluid, which has no odor and I believe to be water, on my garage floor and a few drips where I idled in the driveway waiting for the garage door to open or close. I assume that is related to the A/C - I hadn't used the A/C in a couple weeks, but it's warm AGAIN in Central Texas...
Anyway, if anyone has any idea of what this "Maintenance Other" light is meant to indicate, I would appreciate any input.

Look in your Owner's Manual, "Instruments and Controls", page 2-16 thru 2-19.

This shows you how to reset that warning.

Morton, the OP is asking what the "Maintenance Other" warning means... not how to reset it.

And I agree, the manual doesn't explain what this "other" thing means. At least, I couldn't find it. I had the warning come on this week-end... but my oil change was due. So I got the oil and oil filter changed this morning... and I reset it. Nothing popped back up.
