Bug#410291: [patch] Change Finnish spellchecking to use high-quality Voikko

Package: tasksel
Version: 2.66
Tags: patch


Attached is a patch that changes the tasks for Finnish language to use the first high quality free software spell-checking and hyphenation solution, ie. Voikko. All packages are included in etch.

Tmispell-voikko completely replaces ifinnish and wfinnish. Libenchant-voikko adds support for those programs (the next upstream version of libenchant will also include the plugin by itself).

There's no direct replacement for aspell-fi and myspell-fi, but I recommend removing those from the default installation, since the quality of those is too low to be usable for writing Finnish. Furthermore, myspell-fi might cause problems with openoffice.org-voikko, requiring manual settings for the superior spell-checking to work. Those packages may be installed by anyone if it is really wanted, but the better solution is to eg. convert aspell/myspell using programs to use libenchant anyway, or wait for (theoretical) aspell/myspell-compatibility programs ala tmispell-voikko from the Voikko project.

Naturally it'd be "nice to have" in etch, but do as you see fit.
