Changes included. Newx template file attached.

Template: dictionaries-common/debconf_database_corruption
Type: error
Description: Possible debconf database corruption
 The configuration question for "${question}" is empty but some
 elements are installed for the "${class}" class:
  Choices_dictcom: "${installed_elements}"
  Choices_debconf: "${choices_value}"
  Owners/error: "${shared_owners}"
 This can be related to a corruption of the "debconf" database.
 See "/usr/share/doc/dictionaries-common/README.problems", section
 "Debconf database corruption".
 In this case, running "/usr/share/debconf/fix_db.pl" can help to put
 the debconf database in a consistent state.
 Some questions are likely to be asked after this message in order to
 try leaving the dictionaries system in a (provisionally) working state.

Template: dictionaries-common/invalid_debconf_value
Type: error
# TRANLATORS : DO NOT TRANSLATE variable names such as
# ${value}
_Description: Invalid configuration setting for ${value}
 An invalid value has been found for a configuration setting for
 dictionaries-common. "${value}" does not correspond to any installed package
 in the system.
 That is usually caused by problems at some time during packages
 installation, where the package providing "${value}" was selected for
 installation but finally not installed because of errors in other
 To fix this error, reinstall (or install) the package that provides
 the invalid value. Then, if you don't want this package on
 your system, remove it, which will also remove its configuration
 settings in the "debconf" database. A choices menu
 will be shown after this message in order to leave the system in a
 working state until you fix the problem.
 This error message can also appear during ispell dictionary or wordlist
 renaming (e.g., wenglish -> wamerican). In this case it is harmless and
 everything will be fixed after you select your default in the menu(s)
 shown after this message.

Template: dictionaries-common/default-ispell
Type: select
Choices-C: ${choices}, Manual symlink setting
__Choices: ${echoices}, Manual symlink setting
_Description: System default ispell dictionary:
 Please indicate which dictionary ispell should use as system-wide
 default when no other spell-checking dictionary is specified.
 This sets up the /usr/lib/ispell/default.aff and
 /usr/lib/ispell/default.hash symlinks, as well as ispell's global
 ispell-wrapper and Emacs defaults.
 Use "Manual symlink setting" if you want to handle the symlinks
 yourself. In this case ispell will have no global ispell-wrapper or
 Emacs defaults.
 The default ispell dictionary can be changed at any time by running

Template: dictionaries-common/default-wordlist
Type: select
Choices-C: ${choices}, Manual symlink setting
__Choices: ${echoices}, Manual symlink setting
_Description: System default wordlist:
 Please indicate which wordlist the "/usr/share/dict/words" symlink
 should point to. This will provide a simple list of dictionary words
 for basic spell-checking and word searches. Use "Manual symlink
 setting" if you want to handle this symlink yourself.
 The default wordlist can be changed at any time by running

Template: dictionaries-common/move_old_usr_dict
Type: boolean
Default: true
_Description: Move non-FHS stuff under /usr/dict to /usr/dict-pre-FHS?
 Some files (instead of symbolic links) have been found in
 /usr/dict. According to the FHS, such files should be placed in
 /usr/share/dict. Everything under /usr/dict can be moved to /usr/dict-pre-FHS
 and a symbolic link named /usr/dict can be created, pointing to
 Although no current package uses that obsolete /usr/dict location,
 not having that symlink may break some of your old applications that used
 it, so you are encouraged to let the files be moved and the link be set up.

Template: dictionaries-common/old_wordlist_link
Type: boolean
Default: true
_Description: Remove obsolete /etc/dictionary link?
 There is a /etc/dictionary link on the system. This is obsolete and no
 longer means anything. This link should be removed.
 You will be asked to explicitly select the default wordlist during
 installation of wordlist packages. You can change your selection at any
 time by running "select-default-wordlist".

Template: dictionaries-common/ispell-autobuildhash-message
Type: note
_Description: Problems rebuilding an ${xxpell} hash file (${hashfile})
 The following error happened:
 This error was caused by a package providing "${hashfile}", although it
 can be made evident during other package postinst. Please report
 a bug against the package providing "${hashfile}".
 Until this problem is fixed you will not be able to use ${xxpell}
 with "${hashfile}".

Template: dictionaries-common/remove_old_usr_dict_link
Type: boolean
Default: true
_Description: Remove obsolete /usr/dict symlink?
 A /usr/dict symbolic link has been found. It does not comply with the
 Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS). Since it is obsolete,
 no package currently uses that location and no programs
 should rely on it. Therefore, you are strongly suggested to accept
 its removal.

Template: dictionaries-common/selecting_ispell_wordlist_default
Type: note
_Description: Default values for ispell dictionary/wordlist not set
 Running "dpkg-reconfigure dictionaries-common" will not set the default
 values for ispell dictionary/wordlist. Running "dpkg-reconfigure ispell"
 will not set the default ispell dictionary.
 You should instead use the "select-default-ispell" or
 "select-default-wordlist" commands for that purpose.
