Hi Thomas, 
this issue is nearly 2 years old. Is it possible to get the files integrates in
OOo 3.3. If it isn't the case please re-target it and give needed information in
this issue. Thx.
Comment 2 thomas.lange 2010-09-23 09:27:24 UTC
Ooops! I'm sorry this one seems to have got lost/stuck because of the default
owner. -_-°
However we can't add a dictionary without a legal review of the added license. 
(Setting target to OOo 3.4)

tl->mh: please take over for the legal review.
tl->rsedak: if there is a newer version available please add a new link. Thanks!
And sorry for loosing sight of this one. :-(
Comment 3 robert.sedak 2010-09-23 14:00:38 UTC
No problem.

Unfortunately there is no newer version of dictionary. I do not have any
information if newer version will be in the close future. This version of
dictionary is used in Croatian compilation of OOo (Compiled by myselfe. It has
implemented Croatian translation, dictionary/hipenation and autocorrect
dictionary. Can be downloaded from and "Croatian dictionary
and hyphenation patterns" extension (prepared by Grof), too.
Comment 4 thomas.lange 2010-09-24 07:44:08 UTC
tl->rsedak: Ok. I just asked because it would be pointless to do the legal
review on an outdated extension if the license got changed meanwhile. 
Thanks for the quick response!

Croatian dictionary for OpenOffice with Apache 2.0 license

This is a file containg new dictionary with revised license.

I have changed it to Apache License 2.0, as Robert noticed me the previous license is problematic.
Comment 8 Pedro Giffuni 2011-10-14 19:54:45 UTC

I can't commit it right now but I will update it before the first Apache release (whenever that is).
Comment 9 Pedro Giffuni 2011-10-16 19:14:32 UTC

The is still licensed under the LGPL.

I can't touch the license for any of the files you
are submitting so I am not sure what to do here.

Can you update the zip file?

We now need someone that packages the dictionary in the extensions site.
I hope this is the same:
