official Polish aspell dictionary.) aspell-pl (a lot better then old

It would be nice to add this package to Fedora Core 3. There is a lot
of free space on 4th CD :-)

Well, I know that developers are rather busy and Fedora is trying to
be a community project so I prepared a spec file :) I copied relevant
bits from other aspel-XX packages and one line from Marcin Garski spec

I have to add, that this package was available in RedHat 7.0, but it
was removed from 7.1. I presume that it was license issue - in
previous version of the dictionary author and copyright terms were

As it was mentioned above, we have now new and much better dictionary,
which is licensed under a Creative Commons ShareAlike License.

On this site http://www.fsf.org/licenses/licenses.html#OtherWorks they
urge "to include a copy of the license with the work, for every work,
all the time", so I used %doc macro (the only thing which differs this
package from other Fedora aspell-XX packages). Hmm... I have also
doubts as to which README file should be included... Well, the choice
is up to you :)

And the last but not least thing, are these packages really
architecture dependent? How about adding

BuildArchitectures: noarch

to the spec files (I found it in yum.spec)?
