yes, lingucomponent project. Please add the data needed for external form
as specified in the mail from Martin.

Legal approval/review is needed in *every* case.

Hmm, this is not strictly true. You can grab the LGPL release and

just a reminder: you can of course also redistribute OpenOffice itself under
GPL and then you can include any GPL dictionary you like.
