A couple of extra thoughts from an active maintainer of a dictionary and
the associated extensions.
If the maintainers are not responsive (or if the dictionary is
abandoned), we actually cannot do anything as long as we have no new
maintainer for a fork. If there is somebody willing to overtake the
development, then forking of that particular dictionary is indeed a
In general, I'm interested in anything that brings together scattered
resources and makes stuff more user friendly, be that end users or devs
- there would have to be some sort of a locale-specific admin system for
active maintainers joining. Crowdsourcing stuff works in big languages
but if folk start submitting random stuff to a locale like Scottish
Gaelic or playing with the affix file, that's a recipe for disaster.
- there are different ways in which people maintain their dictionaries.
Some edit the text file directly, others build from corpora, in our
case, we use scripts to build from a dictionary database, which
automatically generates the .zip/.oxt/.xpi files. One would probably
have to consider different entry points if ones were to successfully
attract people from different projects because I would NOT want to have
to start manually maintaining our file.
- one thing that hasn't been mooted yet would be making some provision
for easily creating new dictionaries for new locales, something that has
a loc-tech threshold.
