ru_RU.dic: ISO-8859 text, with CRLF, LF line terminators
Well, hunspell doesn't care whether a line ends in CRLF or LF it handles both equivalently and we presumably have a bunch of mixed line endings in a pile of dictionaries so is there any pressing reason to change them ?
I stumbled over this when working on ibus-typing-booster, but I
added a workaround for ibus-typing-booster already to handle both
line endings. So it is not urgent to change this, but it is not nice
to have this mixed line endings.
I'm inclined to mark this as wontfix/notabug and force "just sucking it down" that the dicts are allowed to have variable line terminators because seeing as hunspell accept that then the dicts are "just like that" in the wild and cleaning them up locally in fedora doesn't help the global story.
Yes, of course, it would be good to get in contact with upstream to
resolve that upstream though.
