Bug#320981: developers-reference: Please mention aspell for spell-checking

Package: developers-reference
Version: 3.3.6
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

As of version 0.60.3-5, aspell contains a "debctrl" filter
('--mode=debctrl' or '-D') for Debian control files which is analogous
to "ispell -g".  Please mention this in section 6.2.3, "The long
