That is a really good page you set up there. It ease some of my
painfull searches.
And also it fixes the myspell issue i have on gentoo by just plainly
using what you guys have in fedora :)
(also I guess rene will be also happy if he manages dicts in debian too :P)

So do you think it is worth the efforts to consolidate the stuff? Or
is it waste of time?

What I think we could do:
Provide some simple wiki page with links to latest versions + git.

If we would generate along .oxt even .xcu extensions we could snatch
at least the firefox lads.

It would improve overall status in all distros as I am not aware of
any that would use the dictionaries provided by applications.

And in the end it would improve the libreoffice released pack, because
we would always provide up-to-date dict stuff. :)
