add Hungarian spelling dictionaries to the localized versions of Firefox and Thunderbird
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b2) Gecko/2007121016 Firefox/3.0b2 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9b2) Gecko/2007121016 Firefox/3.0b2 We need default spelling dictionaries in localized versions, too. There are MPLed spelling dictionaries for Hungarian, Polish, Arabic and so on. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install a localized Hungarian Firefox 2 (unfortunately, there is no localized 3 beta). 2. see languages menu item of text area context menu. Actual Results: There is no Hungarian language in the language menu item of text are context menu. Expected Results: There is default Hungarian spell checking in Hungarian versions of Mozilla products, like in the American English version.
First, we need to add the MPLed dictionaries to the Mozilla source.
There are MPLed Hungarian dictionaries in the following Mozilla Add-on zip file: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/magyarispell/hungarian_dictionary-1.1.4-fx%2Bzm%2Btb.xpi
French localization has already had a solution for this problem: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=408419 Axel, could you help us, too?
I have relicensed the GPLed Hungarian MySpell dictionary to GPL/LGPL/MPL for Firefox 2.x integration, too. Links (the zipped Add-ons contains the dictionary files and their GPL/LGPL/MPL licences): Firefox 2 (MySpell) dictionary: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/magyarispell/hungarian_dictionary-220.127.116.11-fx+zm+tb.xpi Firefox 3 (Hunspell) dictionary: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/magyarispell/hungarian_dictionary-1.1.4-fx+zm+tb.xpi
András, can you change the status to "new"? Thanks.
I confirm this bug. Axel, please take on this.

Ok, found a licensing comment that I can actually read on http://hunspell.sourceforge.net/ ;-) I don't have to do anything here, Andras, you should check in the .aff and .dic, and potentially a README in l10n/hu/extensions/spellcheck/hunspell. The spellcheck directory is already on CVS, but empty, you can get it into your working copy by doing a cvs update -d spellcheck in l10n/hu/extensions, then create the hunspell dir and cvs add it, cvs add your dictionary files and readme, check-in with a comment referencing this bug. In this case that'd be good, as this has a licensing statement, so we have the link to that in cvs history. That's all that's needed.

Ever confirmed: true
Just to be clear, don't check in the extension, but just the dictionary files. It should look like http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/extensions/spellcheck/locales/en-US/hunspell/, just that the dictionary files are likely called hu.aff or hu-HU.aff etc.
Thanks for clear explanation, I'll check this in.

Axel, many thanks for your help. András, we need two check in for MySpell and Hunspell, if it is possible. The xpi files contain the license and the dictionary files. Thanks for your work in advance.
Landing myspell would only matter for the 1.8 branch and Firefox 2.0.0.x. You'll need approval18.104.22.168 for that, .12 is just out of the door. When requesting approval, it'd be good to see some testing on what happens when you already have an hungarian dictionary installed, and then get a build that has the dictionary shipped. Not sure if it's worth doing at this point in the 2.0.0.x lifecycle.
I agree with Axel. Let's leave alone 2.0.0.x. Almost everyone will upgrade to version 3 within a few months.
(In reply to comment #12) > I agree with Axel. Let's leave alone 2.0.0.x.

So newer Fedora etc. Linux versions will use Firefox 2 for a long time yet. But I will be very glad of only the Firefox 3 integration, too.
hu dictionary has been added to hu\extensions\spellcheck\hunspell\ and I keep it up to date.
