I indeed saw the commit, but the idea of typing scsons -h didn't hit my
small brain, so I wrote the ugly patch stored here:

Now I can get rid of it, thanks for the heads-up ;)

I saw this too, and already applied it as you can see in the SLKBUILD in
directory mentioned above. Thanks!

One more thing: the settings in /etc/RHVoice/RHVoice.conf are well
commented but in Russian only. Would you mind providing these comments
in English too?

At second thought, maybe you could just:
1) Write on top of this file:
; Translations of the comments in this file can be found in this 
; documentation folder:
2) Ship the translations at the root of the tree alongside the README
3) Mention for the packagers that they have to install these files in
the documentation directory for RHVoice, and indicate the path to this
directory in /etc/RHVoice/RHVoice.conf at the end of the second line.

Also, maybe you could accept translations of the file by contributors.
If you do, I volunteer for fr.RHVoice.conf ;)

As an aside, the README needs an update as rhvoice-client is no more
shipped (replaced by RHVoice-test?) and the module sd_rhvoive is not yet

@Samuel: could you please include this line in speechd.conf:
#Addmodule "rhvoice"       "sd_rhvoice"    "rhvoice.conf"

This allows to set rhvoice as value of the DefaultModule parameter
in the same file.

@Alex: yesterday I told you that a "dummy" rhvoice.conf was needed in
/etc/speech-dispatcher/module, but that's wrong, the AddModule statement
above is enough to allow setting the default voice as rhvoice.

However, maybe it would be useful after all, just to inform users.
For instance:

# This is a dummy configuration file for the RHVoice synthesizer.
# The settings for RHVoice should be actually made directly in the file
# /etc/RHVoice/RHVoice.conf
