You are right, there are many more dictionary extensions on various sites,
than "internal" dictionaries in LibreOffice source code.

For the internal dictionaries, the situation is different case by case.
Sometimes the dictionary has an upstream repository, and maintainer  send
patch to LibreOffice or ask a developer to create a patch based on a new
release. In other cases the dictionary was committed once and it is
unmaintained in LibreOffice.

In case of Esperanto, I see at least two upstream versions on
Did I understand you well, that you would like to submit a 3rd one?

Best regards,
