[This is a part rant, but posting anyway to hopefully get some feedback]
Based on http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/FeatureDictionary it
looks like Aspell is in real danger of being completely removed from
Fedora in favor of standardizing every applications to use one Spell
Checker for every language. Even if it is not the best spell checker
for the language. For the English language I strongly believe Aspell
is the best spell checker. I'm afraid that other Linux distributions
may follow suit and Aspell may become completely unused, even though
it is the best spell checker for the English language.
More generally I believe standardizing on one spell checker is short
cited. While I agree it is stupid to have multiple dictionaries for
the same language installed, I believe it is even stupider to only
use the same spell checker for all languages to avoid this problem.
Instead the best spell checker for a given language should be used
for all applications using something like Enchant
If anyone on this list have used Fedora 9 or are more in tune with
Fedora development I would like to know.
1) How likely is it that Aspell will be removed from future releases.
