This is a request to add Frisian wordlist/dictionary to Firefox OS.
The XML-file made by Kevin Scannell is attached.
Attached file
Zipped version of the xml-file
What is the way to process this request? 
Is there something I can do myself, like xml to dict with Python?
Hey Wim! I'll need info Kevin as I'm sure he has some tips :) thanks!

For the other dictionaries I've done, someone else has always landed the patch on github... not sure about the process.

Let's see if Rudy can help with this?

We would need to get a keyboard layout implemented first, and then we could add the dictionary.
Could anyone on this provide a ref. to the keyboard layout we want for Frisian language?

If not, I'll try to find one from Android or other sources.

Hello Rudy Lu,

Thank you for all your hard work, really awesome!

I took the Dutch keyboard from github,
hacked it to the Frisian version and pushed it with WebIDE to my Flame.
And it works, both the wordsuggestions as well as the special characters.

If Tim agrees this bug and can be closed.

Josh: once more this is a locale that was 100% completed and tested on 2.2, and that we can sign-off on l10n side if they get the autocorrection in. Since this is minimal risk patch, can we get an approval to land on 2.2?
