We have already been using it for some time, maybe not as regularly as
needed... the problem is that you are using the aspell dictionary from
gnu.org and not from Debian, so it does not match with what we are
working on. ;>

Also it seems to not be able to recognize words with «·» and it splits
them like «instal·lació» so it gets as «insta» and «lació».

That's new! We'll fix this, thanks!
