Hi there,

checking the names in the package hunspell-grc-2.1.5-2.fc15.noarch I discovered that it contains the following files:

hunspell-grc              /usr/share/myspell/grc_GR.aff
hunspell-grc              /usr/share/myspell/grc_GR.dic

I wonder why the language ancient Greek is mixed with the country Greece. I guess it would be similar to mix lat_IT. Both Latin and ancient Greek were written in other places and both Italy and the modern Greek state didn't exist when these classical languages where written.

Wouldn't it be better to label the dictionary without the country code?

Thanks for your help,

Yeah, in most cases we should drop the country code unless there are different spelling rules per territory. There are a few simple minded programs out there that try and match the locale to a dictionary by using the full locale string, but there is no Ancient Greek glibc locale :-), so that doesn't arise in this case.
