Subject 3.4.1_release_blocker requested: [Bug 120033] Include only one english dictionary
Date Tue, 19 Jun 2012 12:02:02 GMT
Andre <af@a-w-f.de> has asked  for 3.4.1_release_blocker:
Bug 120033: Include only one english dictionary
https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=120033


------- Additional Comments from Andre <af@a-w-f.de>
At the moment there are five dictionary extensions included in the english
version of OpenOffice:

dict-en.oxt
en_CA_2_0_0.oxt
dict-en-au-2008-12-15.oxt
dict-en-nz-2008-12-03.oxt
en_US.oxt

These cover different versions of the english language (CA,BT,US,NZ,AU).
This leads to two problems:
1. dict-en.oxt and dict-en-nz-2008-12-03.oxt provide the same thesaurus file
and that leads to a conflict.
2. The five extensions provide four thesaurus files, three of them identical,
all about 18MB large.  This wastes a lot of space.  See bug 119272 for more
details on this.

Drop all these dictionaries except dict-en.oxt.
dict-en.oxt covers the variants AU, CA, GB,US, and ZA anyway.
