Description Hidden 2011-06-25 09:12:58 UTC
Description of problem: The packaged dictionary flags words with letter ё (jo) as misspellings.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1:0.99f7-5.fc15

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Spellcheck the file contating such a word, like "ещё"
Actual results: There's an offering to replace it with "еще".

Expected results: The word is considered correct.

Additional info: The upstream archive contains a separate dictionary apparently related to this problem.

One of the problems here is that there are a pile of Russian dictionaries floating around, and various variants, and all documentation is in Russian which I can't read :-),so a native speaker is needed to recommend the best dictionary to use.

What should we use ? Which is the best one currently available ?

Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2011-07-01 08:15:02 UTC
Let me guess, the yo variant

Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2011-07-04 13:04:50 UTC
feedback suggests that this is a no-go as the other variant makes non yo spelling incorrect, annoying another bunch of people.

Is there a combined dictionary, or a solution that makes everyone happy ?

Comment 6 Hidden 2011-07-11 08:51:04 UTC
I have wonderful idea: take normal dictionary, jo-dictionary, unmunch them and merge. Then lift affix file from aspell-ru and munch them with it, then convert it to UTF-8.

Or wouldn't it be easier take aspell dictionary entirely? It has 'ye', 'yo' and 'yeyo' variants.

Comment 7 Caolan McNamara 2011-07-11 09:10:48 UTC
I could probably munge together the two ye and yo dicts myself, but the real question is if there is a current, up-to-date and maintained combined ye+yo hunspell or firefox or libreoffice of openoffice.org dictionary already available ?

Comment 8 Hidden 2011-07-11 17:20:01 UTC
Firefox one works correctly.

Comment 9 Fedora Update System 2011-07-12 09:43:45 UTC

Comment 10 Caolan McNamara 2011-07-12 09:45:31 UTC
So, lets try https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/russian-spellchecking-dic-3703/ which is a more recent to->hunspell conversion of 0.99g5

Comment 11 Fedora Update System 2011-07-31 04:04:13 UTC
hunspell-ru-0.99g5-1.fc15 has been pushed to the Fedora 15 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
