Its in rawhide already. The hunspell-nl of F15 doesn't need it, right ? I'm not sure if a bump to 1.3 would require a rebuild of everything in F15 that links against it, i.e. new soname and/or abi changes. I'm generally reluctant to mess with the stable released fedoras.

(In reply to comment #1) > The hunspell-nl of F15 doesn't need it, right? That's correct. However, as soon as the new OpenTaal dictionary 2.1.0 is out, an update to hunspell-nl and the firefox/libreoffice langpacks would be in order as well. > sure if a bump to 1.3 would require a rebuild of everything in F15 that links > against it, i.e. new soname and/or abi changes.

I couldn't say if it would require a rebuild, but I do know the new version brings some significant improvements to the Dutch spellchecker.

hmm, ideally would be great to identify what commits brought in the required changes/improvements and selectively take them if possible. http://hunspell.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/hunspell/hunspell/src/hunspell/
Comment 4 Reinout van Schouwen 2011-09-13 13:10:03 UTC
According to the OpenTaal project leader, the changes that lead toward 1.3 were almost all driven by the requirements for Dutch, so I'm afraid that cherry-picking patches doesn't make sense.
Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2011-09-16 11:35:10 UTC
Yeah, looking through it that seems to be the case alright. Hmm, pseudo- keep the same soname but upgrade to 1.3.2 sounds also a horror, there are subtle api changes too which may have an effect on non-rebuilt libs even then. I'd rather not mess with the released stable release with a effectively base lib of so many applications.
