Should I wait with this package until Bullseye is released?

.aff is an affix definition file. README_sl_SI.txt has (outdated)
instructions on how to use it with OpenOffice.
This exact same file is also packaged and installed into
/usr/share/hunspell by "hunspell-sl", since hunspell/Libreoffice makes
use of it.
As far as I can tell, .aff is not used or related to aspell at all. I
don't think it makes sense to install it anywhere in "aspell-sl". I
included it under /usr/share/doc only for the sake of completion.
If you think it makes more sense, I can simply drop it from the binary

I like it better the way it is right now because doc-utf8 directory is
created and removed a few lines apart in d/rules. It makes it clearer
what is going on.
As far as I can tell, dh_installdocs can't automatically transcode
files, so I need the overrides.

Can you tell me which lintian warnings you mean? I only get:
$ lintian --version
$ lintian --pedantic aspell-sl_0.60+really0.50.0-1_all.deb
$ lintian --pedantic aspell-sl_0.60+really0.50.0-1.dsc
P: aspell-sl source: package-uses-old-debhelper-compat-version 12
debhelper-compat is 12 in Buster. I think it makes sense to make it
possible to build the package on current stable.

It's a text file compressed with "prezip" (part of aspell). You can
decompress it with "precat sl.cwl"
