This is not an option, because Hunspell development is part of LibreOffice.
Authors and main contributors are all LibreOffice (OpenOffice.org)
Caolán and me used GitHub only as a git repository for Hunspell, fixing
Hunspell problems mostly reported by LibreOffice users.
Driving force and main target of Hunspell development is still LibreOffice.

To solve this unfortunate situation, please, separate your "hunspell2"
under a different gitHub project and name, without using "Hunspell" or
"Hunspell v2" titles for it.
This will help me a lot to continue Hunspell developments for LibreOffice
in the next few weeks and later.
