Default Spelling library consolidation

Hi,

I've just discovered an old blueprint on Launchpad[0] and the
corresponding wiki page[1], that Ubuntu was planning to consolidate
spelling libraries. Fedora developers have already completed the
process, and have a really useful wiki page[2], that was already
picked up by openSUSE[3] as well. My question would be: do Ubuntu
developers plan to fix this issue in the near future (I guess it's
already a bit late for Hardy)?

Thanks,
Szilveszter

Default Spelling library consolidation

Since we talk about it, two questions about hunspell in Hardy:

1) The specification [1] about removing duplicate dictionnaries suggest
we make OpenOffice.org use myspell in order to avoid the need for
unspell. A comment states that hunspell is an improvement of myspell,
dropped by OO.o in the 2.x series. So is this true that we are willing
to loose the new features of hunspell when the contrary should be done
(i.e. dropping aspell and myspell)? Note Mozilla products also use hunspell.


2) When searching for what hunspell dicts are available, I can only find
these in our package list, in both Gutsy and Hardy:
hunspell-de-at - Austrian (German) dictionary for hunspell
hunspell-de-ch - Swiss (German) dictionary for hunspell
hunspell-de-de - German dictionary for hunspell
hunspell-uz - The Uzbek dictionary for Hunspell

Am I missing something, or aren't there any other languages we support
for now?

The OO.o wiki [2] lists many more available Hunspell dictionaries, many
of which were recently updated. In French for example, current OO.o
orthograph checker is quite poor, but a new dictionary will be provided
with 2.4, which will solve almost all of our problems. I guess this can
be the case for several languages.

So is Hardy be going to provide more Hunspell languages, and is this
hard work to package?

Cheers

I also filed a bug alluding to this a few years ago:
