Spell checker thinks "adoptee" is a misspelling
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.10; rv:47.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/47.0 Build ID: 20160623154057 Steps to reproduce: 1. Visit http://pastebin.mozilla.org/ 2. Type "adoptee" into the text box Actual results: Squiggly red underline indicating misspelling Expected results: No squiggly red underline indicating misspelling. For reference for the spelling of "adoptee", please see http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/adoptee or http://www.dictionary.com/browse/adoptee (currently I am unable to install Xcode on my machine otherwise I would follow the MDN procedure for adding a new word to the en-US dictionary.)
Component: Untriaged → Spelling checker
Product: Firefox → Core
We should add this since it seems common enough, has a high SCOWL rating and is in en_US-large: http://app.aspell.net/lookup?dict=en_US;words=adoptee
Hi, I was finally able to get my dev environment set up on my computer and I am trying to add the word per instructions here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Adding_a_new_word_to_the_en-US_dictionary I am using mozilla-central via: hg clone https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central I am able to successfully add the word to "5-mozilla-added" but when I quit my editor and try to run the command "sh merge-dictionaries" as described in the above tutorial from the directory extensions/spellcheck/locales/en-US/hunspell/dictionary-sources it says: "sh: merge-dictionaries: No such file or directory" I see that there is a "make-new-dict" and "install-new-dict" in the directory but not "merge-dictionaries". What am I missing here to merge the word I added and proceed with moving the revised dictionary file? Any help is greatly appreciated.
To add a single word to the dictionary, add it to en-US.dic and don't forget to increase the count at the very top. This change here is a two-liner. All those scripts are for bulk import of new dictionaries from the upstream source (SCOWL). For your case, see https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/diff/e42e07e4f668/extensions/spellcheck/locales/en-US/hunspell/en-US.dic as an example of a single word addition.
This https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Adding_a_new_word_to_the_en-US_dictionary seems 100% out of date.
Actually, you should add this line: adoptee/MS The suffixes M and S are for plural (adoptees) and possessive form (adoptee's) (or vice versa).
Fantastic. Thank you for clarifying and sharing the example.
My apologies but I was not able to submit patch via bzexport. Kept receiving the error: "abort: Local changes found; refresh first!" after running hg bzexport -e Proposed patch for spelling checker has been edited per instructions in comments. I would like to streamline this process for future additions. Any help or documentation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your patience
You need to attach a patch for review, not the edited file. You can use mercurial queues to create one: hg qnew -m "Bug 1293704 - added adoptee/MS. r=ehsan" 1293704.patch. Your reviewer will be Ehsan (email@example.com).
All set now. When I tried mercurial's qnew previously, I received "hg: unknown command 'qnew'" because I had mq disabled. Enabled mq and was able to create patch. Will attach patch file. Thanks!
Comment on attachment 8793880 [details] [diff] [review] Proposed Patch - Added adoptee/MS to spelling checker Please check patches before attaching them for review. Did you not see that you saved the file as UTF-8 where it was ANSI encoded before? You destroyed every single word with an accent, and you can see it in the patch, just look: -Asunción/M +Asunciï¿½n/M

Apologies - amateur mistake. My editor defaulted to UTF-8. Will resubmit
Updated proposed patch with correct encoding format. Thank you for your patience.
Comment on attachment 8793967 [details] [diff] [review] Proposed Patch - Added adoptee/MS to spelling checker Yep ;-)

Actually, you don't seem to have Mercurial set up correctly. To land the patch, it needs the author noted in it. My patches for example look have this: # HG changeset patch # User Jorg K <firstname.lastname@example.org> # Parent 5644818538de2413cce52551e32b025e6c7e352e Bug 301712 - Remove uncommon proper names, remove unneeded words. r=ehsan Another question. When this bug is done, maybe we can interest you in bug 1255327. That's a little harder since you'd have to add canonicalization/MS and also the verb, canonicalize which comes with the usual suffixes: canonicalized, canonicalizes, canonicalizing.
Hmmn - Looks like on my Global Config ("$HOME/.hgrc"): [ui] username = m-r-m-s <email@example.com> but local repository at mozilla-central/.hg/hgrc is an example configuration file. I guess that is overriding global config? Will try and sort out and resubmit. Yes, I am interested in bug 1255327 once this bug is complete
I have that in mercurial.ini

(In reply to litewrite from comment #16) > Will try and sort out and resubmit. Coming up? When you do, you can add the review+ yourself and add as a comment: Added user name to patch. Carrying forward Ehsan's r+. Then you need to add the keyword "checkin-needed" so a sheriff will take the patch and commit it to the code base.

Spent most of yesterday trying to figure out why User comments weren't being included in patch despite having the [ui] populated in my .hgrc file (mac os x equilvalent of the mercurial.ini). Still had no success. Added the User comments manually to patch, then did a "hg qrefresh". I will re-submit here shortly per your most recent instructions. Really appreciate all the help so far!
Added user name to patch. Carrying forward Ehsan's r+.
