I see. How about if I take one of the current 'openoffice.org-dictionaries'
packages, mutilate it into a '-fi' one and upload it by myself? It's just
one .dic file, though, nothing more.
My main concern is that the package may go out of sync with
'openoffice.org-dictionaries' but perhaps it is a sensible temporary solution
if we also attempt to get hyph_fi_FI accepted into the upstream source tree?
Chris, do you know what it takes to get a contributed dictionary accepted? I
suppose simply filing a wishlist bug won't do because of SUN's strict
copyright policy, even though the dictionary places no restrictions to usage
or distribution. Try and get all the original authors to sign a copyright
assignment form? (Could prove to be very hard if not impossible as the
dictionary is originally from the 80's.)
