For the one that finally takes this package I have a couple of patches
a) Registering aspell-nl for use under emacsen. This will make aspell-nl
be properly recognized and used under emacs. This will fix #314622, filed
against emacs21. I did not reassign it yet, and prefer to wait until the
mail does not go to the QA team.
b) Use aspell-0.60 affix compression for aspell-nl. This is still
incomplete, and also gives some warnings that need to be debugged by
somebody speaking dutch. Seem harmless, and might be interesting for
upstream, if active.
I also suggest the new maintainer to take a look at
and subscribe to dict-common-dev mailing list there. That is a low traffic
list and, even open, has little spam.
