3 packages are in AUR already. Can be moved to Extra.

sure I can do that. Any idea how I can tell which of them are broken and which are not?

I suppose all that are post-2004 should be good, older should prbobably too, if they compile. If they compile but are not working properly (messed encodings etc.) then users will report bugs. :)
Also, there are a bunch of them in AUR (not 3 as I wrote before).
Most of them should have the same build instructions (except for Ukrainian which I hacked to get the latest version), so you can move them to Extra as well.

Now aspell FTP has the latest Ukrainian dictionary. Please move aspell-uk from Community to Extra.
aspell-pl (Polish) is also in Community. aspell-cs and aspell-da are in Unsupported but have many votes, so I think it's worth to move them to Extra too.

If we decide to add aspell dictionnaries (after bringing it up on the ML), I could help with the initial addition. Once in the repo, they don't look as needing much maintenance so Roman could just adopt them. Will we add only the ones currently in AUR or all the ones in ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/aspell/dict/ ? That list seems pretty long but we could add them progressively by starting with the ones in AUR.

This was discussed some time ago in {arch,aur}-general MLs and I volunteered to adopt and move to some binary repo all available aspell & openoffice{,-spell}-<lang> packages but this wasn't done at that time due to a couple of forced inactivity periods of me. :-(

The introduction of arch-independent packages support in pacman 3.1 will help in maintaining these packages in future.

Well, we have the 'any' arch now. What's the status of this?
Comment by Hugo Doria (hdoria) - Thursday, 17 July 2008, 03:14 GMT
I can adopt and move some aspell and openoffice{-spell}-<lang> packages to [extra]. Should i bring this discussion on ML before?

What's the status of this issue?

Sorry for the long delay, totally my fault.
Now with the splitted packages this should be even more easy, I just need to lean how to 'get things done' :-(

About broken ones, I checked out the Swedish aspell-sv on aur. (I'm a native speaker of Swedish). Seems fine in my tests, except I needed to add an "
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')" line. Spell checking seems to have reasonable coverage (perfect coverage would be impossible for Swedish, since you can basically concatenate (with minor modifications) any number of existing words to form a new valid one) and so far I didn't hit any incorrectly added words. Hope this means that aspell-sv can go into extra. :)

Roman, what's the status of this one?
