Meeting with Polderland 28.11.2007


  • Peter Beinema
  • Sjur Moshagen


  • Since last time
  • Possible issues
  • Next meeting
  • Todo items for the next meeting

Since last time


  • inDesign spellers work except for custom dictionaries (FN)
    • Interface appears to be quite complex. Drop planned for next week.
  • BOE modifications completed, delivered
  • Win installer/extractor completed, delivered
  • installer bugs analyzed. re-drop planned with 2 changes: unique version ID incremented; dutch texts removed

Planned drops:

  • new version of installer (this week)
  • L+N spellers for indesign CS3 (next week)

Next drops:

  • hyphenator for InDesign
  • speller for InDesign (hopefully this week)

Open issues after these drops:

  • Windows installer issues
  • 576 – heajus vs heajos– (hyphens replaced with n-dash to please forrest)
    • heajos– should be accepted (with hyphen only) – it is
    • heajus should be accepted – it is
    • heajos should NOT be accepted – *** it IS accepted ==> in accordance with lex, not a bug
    • heajos–Oslo should be accepted – *** it is NOT accepted, but the exact same string is suggested, and when inserted (corrected) gets a red underline immediately ==> Bug. repaired, dropped
      • the bug is still seen in another case, see test results for bug 518


  • new speller with BOE change released and tested - seems to work fine
  • new Windows installation evaluated - seems fine, licenses for PB ordered
  • still more PLX conversion fixes
