Dictionaries & stuff

I am currently messing with hunspell dictionaries in Gentoo as we have them on
some places seriously outdated.
This led me to unfortunate conclusion that there is NO official page where to
figure which are latest version and how to obtain them.
Some stuff is stored on . But there it is redirected to sourceforge with no
damn way to figure out which out of bazilion subfolders containing the named
lang.oxt is the right one, as they never really bothered in versioning them.
Other stuff is usually stored on webpages lovely translated only in the native
language  (often offline just try few hours later if it throws name
Conclusion then is that there is no official source where to obtain all the
languages from one place.
So my idea would be to somehow promote our dictionaries git repo and convince
others to contribute to it. Also we would create new VERSIONED packages from
it and put them to the mirror system with every libreoffice release. Providing
lovely resources style like:
Which would be then easily to-grab for packagers and users. The versions are
hardcoded to YYYYMMDD rather than to LO version as the dicts don't update with
each release so we would waste space with using lo versions there.
The tricky part is to convince the translators (or whomever works on this
thing) to contribute here. Any ideas?
