I was talking about *how* they are packaged in the basis core-01
package.  Before, they were packaged as single packages. You can find
the remaining of this under
trunk/main/setup_native/source/packinfo/packinfo_office.txt All the
gid_Module_Root_Extension_Dictionary_<LANG> are package descriptions for
extension dictionaries, see

If you are still planning to package for Fedora, you will have to
workaround this (extensions should be in its own package) and the
problem of the duplication when the extensions is copied in the user
installation (Fedora used a patched version of unopkg that added the
link option).
