Description doko 2007-02-07 17:11:38 UTC
hyph_en_CA.dic, as found in
http://ftp.services.openoffice.org/pub/OpenOffice.org/contrib/dictionaries/hyph_en_CA.zip

is derived from a file licensed under the LPPL, but it violates at least
paragraph 6d of the LPPL.

Needed information: Either distribute the original file as well, or (better)
name the file and the version of the file which the derived work is based on.
The LPPL requests "Information that is sufficient to obtain a complete,
unmodified copy of the Work."

The LPPL can be found at http://www.latex-project.org/lppl.txt

SBA: Confirming 21 sub-issues of issue 74283 at once.
I believe that doko did the right thing and could/should have set the issues to
NEW right after submitting (Just like all "CanConfirm rights owners" do when
submitting issues)

Thus I beieve that taking a second look at EACH of these files is not worth the
effort. The state "Unconfirmed" is irritating queries used in daily QA work.
