My standard boilerplate reply was:

"Please note that we will not receive contributions under
copyleft licenses anymore. We recommend Apache License 2.0
to be consistent with the rest of the suite."

I do think that having their dictionaries in OOo is a
good motivation for them to adopt a less restrictive

The issue here, however, is that we may want to rethink
if we will be carrying dictionaries at all: hunspell
is copyleft.
