Description Peter van Egdom 2002-12-30 17:28:12 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021218

Description of problem:

According to "http://aspell.sourceforge.net/" there's a newer version of GNU
Aspell available than the one supplied with Phoebe. In fact, the version
supplied with Phoebe is, if I'm correct, unsupported by the authors

(The newest version of Balsa complained about this issue during compiling).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Checkout http://aspell.sourceforge.net/
2. Checkout Phoebe RPM's

Actual Results:  Version supplied with Phoebe is older & unsupported

Expected Results:  Now's the time for Phoebe to perform the update trick.

Additional info:

Red Hat Linux release 8.0.92 (Phoebe)
Comment 1 James Ralston 2003-01-22 18:07:06 EST
Certain vendors are already wanting to ship software that uses more recent
versions of aspell.  This isn't simply an upgrade for the sake of upgrading;
shipping the old version of aspell is causing compatibility problems.

I concur with the original submitter: please upgrade to the latest version of
aspell.  (While I'm not familiar with Red Hat's release cycle, one would hope it
isn't too late to get the more recent version into Phoebe for testing...)

aspell-, aside from being disowned by its author, is buggy. See bug
83025. The severity on this should be at least "normal".

aspell will be upgraded in the next release
