Bug Description

Binary package hint: myspell-ro

Starting from lucid, openoffice provides a dictionary for the Romanian language in the hunspell-ro package.

There is no need for the myspell-ro package any more and it should be removed.

Jani, I subscribed you to this bug because you're the maintainer of myspell-ro.

If you have time to let the necessary parties to remove this package, please do so. I'd do it right now but I don't know what's the proper protocol in this problem.

Chris Cheney mailed me yesterday about the conflict with hunspell-ro so it is known and I forwarded it to Adi and Alex since they know more about this. I am not the maintainer of myspell-ro, just uploaded it and am not up-to-date with the status of dictionaries.
So it definitely can be removed if all involved know it is the right thing to do.

Jani, can you find out what keeps myspell-ro in Lucid?

I can't find anything depending on it:

$ apt-cache rdepends myspell-ro
myspell-ro
Reverse Depends:

but as I understood, if it's not pulled by something into main/ it won't be built any more.

sure, it is not in main/ on the CD but still in the archive despite not being used anymore, and can confuse users.

Not in Debian. Not useful in Ubuntu. Seems like a good removal candidate to me.
