Description Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2019-01-06 20:50:51 UTC
Our small English dict does not even know simple words like attenuator.
The large dict knows it.
http://app.aspell.net/lookup?dict=en_US;words=attenuator


I suggest we add it to the tree. Either as option in 
app-dicts/myspell-en
or as a separate package
app-dicts/myspell-en_large


Upstream collects all in one place and it would fit well to app-dicts/myspell-en. 
https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/dictionaries/tree/en/README_en_US.txt

So I assign it to the app-dicts/myspell-en maintainer. Please let us know, if you do not feel comfortable with the assignment. We will have to look for a maintainer then.

I think a new ebuild is best for now..
