Description of problem:
The Dutch aspell dictionary as distributed by Red Hat appears not to be the same
as the one that is available on the GNU aspell dictionary list site :


The maintainer of the GNU version of the aspell dictionary has the following to
say about this particular version :


"The word list has been compiled from a number of sources:

 1. The list used in the aspell-nl-0.1.rpm package. The main reason
    I decided to build the present package is that I could not find
    a tarball distribution of this rpm and that some ``exceptions''
    from the official lists seemed to be missing.

 2. The lists in the official announcement (1996) about spelling

 3. The list by Piet Tutelaers available on

Would it be a good idea to use the GNU version of aspell-nl instead?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. - Checkout Red Hat Linux 9 or current (30 may 2003) Rawhide.

2. - Checkout GNU Aspell Dictionaries

Actual Results:
1. - See that "aspell-nl-0.1-17" is in Red Hat.

2. - See that "aspell-nl-0.50-2.tar.bz2" exists.

Expected Results:
  Maybe Red Hat should sync with GNU Aspell Dictionaries?
