Hello Dennis,

The TL;DR version: Provide a central place for dictionaries maintainers
including useful tools plus a possibility for easier collaboration.


I think the idea is awesome. One of the programs I localize currently
maintains its own list of dictionary URLs in XML format, and these point
to OOo mirrors, which I suppose are slowly going into oblivion...

Since Hunspell (with a few exceptions, I know) is pretty much the
de-facto spell checker in today's open-source applications (and not just
them), I think it may be beneficial to have a central repository to host
these dictionaries. Perhaps it would even make sense to adopt one of the
package formats as proposed/official, and then begin getting in touch
with application developers, suggesting that they adopt support for it.
Possibilities here are endless, for example, the repository could
(should) provide a generated listing of these dictionaries in some
pre-agreed format, so that application developers could parse it
automatically and allow users to download desired dictionaries and
install them without ever opening their browser. TDF might indeed be a
good candidate to host such repository.
