Hi all,

@ Rob
It's a new dictionary, no a code variant from Hunspell. The article
talks/confront our standard hunspell with other spell checker (Galgo,
code privative and only available for MsOffice founded by galician
Administration with public and linguistic resources while are retailed
or subtract for free resources.

@ Andrea
Our recent hunspell versions (12.10 and 13.10) are a very hugh
evolution, on all aspects so technical, linguistic or social. Now, we
can produce semiautomatic specializated versions on demand

Important question:

We have 2 versions for each release and we DON'T want embed the
version for standalone extension in the release code of AOO. «Default»
subversion is pure academic criterion, standalone subversion is a mix
with resources from other sources and community criterion.  So, please
left manage our way this local feature.
