I added legacy files to version control and I also updated the README
which I forgot to do last time. But legacy files will not be packaged
and distributed in the product, they will be part of source packages

Please note that in LibreOffice git there is a newer version of
it_IT.aff than in svn, please check if it is correct. In svn you have
version 2.4, in git we have version 3.3. BTW both are the same, only
the comment sections at the beginning of the files are different.

Also please note that the extension icon, which is the Italian flag,
will not be used in LibreOffice, because we don't use national flags
as icons at all. I understand that probably nobody may be offended by
the Italian flag, but we shall make no exceptions.

Best regards,
