Description of problem:
The new release of hunspell (already packaged in Fedora 16 alpha) provides enhanced hyphen handling, required for a new release of the Dutch OpenTaal spellchecking dictionary.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. hunspell -v
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
