I write Hebrew, and I want auto-hyphenation. But - LO says it doesn't have hyphenation patterns of Hebrew / for HE-IL; and the TDF wiki language resources page doesn't show such patterns anyway.
They need to exist...
Well, it seems LaTeX distributions don't have hyphenation patterns for Hebrew.
So now the question becomes: Can we generate them somehow?
For what it is worth, the libhyphen format is somewhat described at https://github.com/hunspell/hyphen/blob/master/README.hyphen (and the other READMEs beside it for more complicated things). Patterns to match text against, with odd numbers as potential hyphenation points and even numbers as not-to-hyphen points IIRC.
If there are hyphens used in, e.g. newspapers. is there any known style guide for hyphenation they are following?

I plan on trying to get in touch with some newspapers to see if I can figure this one out.
But I do need to clarify that other than in media that is tall and narrow-column, hyphenation is possible but uncommon.
