Official en-US spelling dictionary?

Marcin Miłkowski
Hi,

who is responsible now for maintaining the official en_US dictionary for
OOo? There is an extension on the extension website but it's a bit older
than the version distributed with OOo, so it cannot be considered an
update (it also has a wrong version scheme). Ideally, the extension
should become a bit more official (so that the maintainer could be
assigned issues in IZ to update it) and the dictionary should be brought
in sync with the current distributed version (I've just found an error
in it - it contains a non-dictionary word 'underly' that is absent in
all spelling dictionaries I have access to - or marked as a typo).

Best regards
Marcin

I am responsible for the contents of the dictionary but
Németh László <[hidden email]> is responsible for actually creating
the release.  See "Additional Information"
at http://wordlist.sourceforge.net/.

Until a new official dictionary (or extension) is released you can use en
en_US dictionary I created for Mozilla which you can find attached to this
bug report:
   https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=397150
or download it directly:
   https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=290079

I am going to email Németh László to work out how to create new official
dictionary.

As far as I understand the new process, it should be created as an
extension. The problem is that there is already an en-US dictionary
extension there, so you might want to contact its maintainer to make
him/her responsible for updates (as Laci seems to be sufficiently busy
doing lots of work on hunspell).

And how will I do that, he does not provide any way to contact him that I
can see other than posting a public comment (and yes I logged in).

I have already emailed Németh László and will give him a few days before I
take any additional action.

I've checked the ID of the extension offered - it's not the same as the
official dicts: org.openoffice.en.hunspell.dictionaries, so another,
official English dictionary extension can be built by the official
maintainers, which is you, Laci, or anyone else you think fit for the
role. It would be then picked up during update, and, according to the
plan that was posted here on this list some time ago, the extensions
will be automatically updated in OOo (=added to the source codebase)
based on the extension website in the future.

Marcin

Re: Official en-US spelling dictionary?

Robert Black-2
Hello,

I Just wanted to say this is great news that an official English
dictionaries update will be maintained on the Extensions website.

I had a user ask me recently on the community forums how they could get an
English dictionary because they lived in France and had that version of the
installer.  I ended up just privately sending them the extension that is
unpacked in the install directory, and only realised then that this was a
bit of loophole.

Robert Black

Re: Official en-US spelling dictionary?

Németh László-2
Hi,

I will make a new en_US dictionary based on Kevin's new data, also a
new CWS for the en_US dictionary upgrade. I have no information about
the status of the en_US extension, but you are right, it would be fine
to maintain the extension as official release. The main goal of the
planned dictionary upgrade is extending the dictionary with
morphological data for better thesaurus usage and it depends from the
CWS hunspell4thesaurus integration (I wait for the respond of the QA,
see http://eis.services.openoffice.org/EIS2/cws.ShowCWS?Path=DEV300%2Fhunspell4thesaurus).

Best regards,
László

Hi László,

in case you don't plan to extend the dictionary for the 3.1 release, we
can at least update the bundled extension and make sure that it is the
same as in the repository. As I have a CWS with updated and new
dictionaries for 3.1 I could volunteer to do that.

Regards,
Mathias

Hi Mathias,

Within a few days I will send an extended (for morphological generation and
better stemming) version. Thanks for your help.
