I create already a new repo on gitlab : but only for the
dic, the other things are not in my skills.

Yes, already done. But The dic doesn't "work". After installing the oxt,
or copy the files in /usr/share/hunspell. The spellchecking doesn't
work. Burmese or Myanmar don't appear in the list of language. I tried
to add manually "my" and "my_MM". Nothing. Can have a look to the
extension in gitlab to be sure I didn't make errors in it?
I remember similar problem when I tried to do the Kikongo (Kituba)

Ok I download the deb package, but I had dependencies issues with
Libreoffice of the Ubuntu official ppa, I need to install LO from the
Document Fondation website. Well it is now in Burmese! Very good.
Maybe for the hunspell spellchecker,  I need to use an other code, no?
Bu or something like that?
