No, haven't seen it yet, but now that you point it out....Article:

Appears short and to the point.

Wikipedia entries are most likely written by volunteers so whomever entered 
the information knew enough to enter what you see there on the page but 
perhaps didn't know other details which may be worth pointing out (that is 
if from your point of view there appears to be something missing).
If you are aware of such web dictionaries, sometimes you may be able to put 
something more detailed yourself. For example, this is not Aspell, but 
hopefully you get the idea:

...therefore, using the same idea, it may be worth adding a new category here 
for spelling and then adding aspell as the first entry    ???   ;-)

There appears to be an "edit" link on Wikipedia, so if you think there is 
something missing, I'm guessing you could edit it further, but you might 
want to throw your ideas "here" before actually committing to an edit there.
This way anything worth adding hopefully gets tossed in all in one shot.

If Wikipedia works the way some other dictionaries work, someone on the other 
side may probably check your edit for validity/offensiveness/correctness or 
other details before committing your edit to the actual Wikipedia...  In 
this case, it may be 1 day to a few weeks before your entry actually shows 

Hope that helps.
