Getting openoffice.org-voikko into sid
Hello, OOo team!
I tried e-mailing Rene, but it's probably anyway a better thing to ask for
a sponsor and guidance on this mailing list, and Rene can answer here,
too. Openoffice.org-voikko is the last piece missing to have a full
Finnish spellchecking available in Debian, Finnish being a language
aspell/myspell/hunspell simply can't handle well enough.
I have been able to get the other packages sponsored via
http://mentors.debian.net/: malaga (updated version to an existing
package in Debian), suomi-malaga, libvoikko and tmispell-voikko. They are
in the NEW queue, and the first three of them are needed to be
build/installed to build openoffice.org-voikko:
(though kaol messed with -v option for the last three so .changes is not
complete, hopefully the packages are not rejected because of that)
Do you think someone of you could sponsor openoffice.org-voikko, too?
The current version is at
ITP #388803 as stated in the changelog.
Kaol thought he does not have enough expertise in OOo to sponsor that
I can do whatever changes you think still would be beneficial, in
addition to those that have been done. The packaging is partly
similar with the existing, non-free openoffice.org-soikko that is in
Debian already. There's this generic problem with installing updating OOo
extensions, which is now handled with that additional conflicts-generation
and the installation script which is similar to the openoffice.org-soikko
If you want to fetch sources for all the five packages from mentors.debian.net
(though tmispell-voikko of course not needed for checking OOo functionality),
