Yes, we probably should. I would like to remove the aspell stuff first
from the policy document to avoid confusions in the future, but I am
afraid I will not have much time to do that in the next two weeks. I
still do not know what to do with the aspell code once new aspell is at
some time uploaded. I think the only aspell package currently using the
installdeb-aspell stuff is my aspell-gl-minimos package, so that part
should not be a big problem. But I guess some thing will need to be done
for the emacs stuff since we cancel the ispell.el pre-settings for
languages and substitute them by our auto-generated ones.
Aspell manuals suggest that the best way to set aspell as spellchecker
under emacs is to put
(setq-default ispell-program-name "aspell")
in the ~/.emacs file, but I am afraid that is read after all the lisp
dict-common stuff is read. Otherwise some sort of
emacsen-aspell-dicts.el file could be generated or one hardcoded added
to the package and read if aspell selected.
