    • I'm not able to find the installer
      • get back to you on that - resend the link
  • South Sami:
    • working simultaneously on all versions, +/-, aim to complete complicated ones first (Office 2004 Mac, Indesign).
    • new stuff: Nullsoft installers: investigating possibilities/general setup.
    • Mac Office: South Sami encoded as Slovak
  • bugs: forgot to send the answers on 3 of the bugs, will do that today rest follow later
  • reply by Adobe received, refers to website + download account; no link found however, situation unclear (though apparently positive). Investigate. Could be that SDK is not available yet.
  • openOffice: will send quote for 9 versions: north/lule/south * win/mac/linux


  • M&S - waiting for a response from Polderland
  • South Sámi offer: answer received regarding formalities, contract should be ready for signature shortly

Language to disguise South Sámi as in MS Office / Mac: Slovak.

Possible open-source installer software for Windows:

  • NSIS appears to support all requirements, including:
    • multi-lingual
    • scriptable
    • scripts compilable on non-windows platforms

Bug status


Nothing new since last time.

To be solved/investigated by Divvun

Div Pld Description
621 xxx other hyphenator bugs. PB: not as much incorrect as well as weird-looking.
630 xxx Word (prefix) with hyphen is rejected - and suggested
652 xxx UPPERCASE-typos only get acronym-suggestions: VARI -> no sugg, vARI -> VÁRI as sugg; consequence of the sugg. mechanism, unresolvable
581 xxx consonant doubling => actual problem is suggestions with hyphens (split compound type); these can be blocked as suggestions, and thus be removed (they would still be recognised, though)
670 xxx REGRESSION: hard hyphen replaced with soft, see latest test results - since this was fixed earlier, and the hyphenation binary has not changed since then, we should investigate this first to see if we produce illegal PLX entries.

Under investigation by Polderland

Div Pld Description
581 xxx consonant doubling
595 xxx problem with prefix containing hyphens
603 xxx suffix is accepted in the middle of a word
613 xxx speller does not accept 'Ga' tagged word as 2nd part
670 xxx Hard hyphen replaced by soft hyphen. Regression? Check for v. 1.1
679 xxx Discretionary/soft hyphen not respected - repaired, repaired code to be dropped
