2011-12-26 14:59:40 you set "Bug 34497 - Get more dictionaries online shows the wrong link" to WFM,
2011-12-26 15:00:01 you open this one. Can you please explain?
I believe this one is a DUP of "Bug 42408 - the address referred by tools -> languages -> more dictionaries online doesn't work". I reopened that one and asked for cleanup-
This isn't a dup of Bug 42408, as we're talking about a similar but not identical address. In this case, the software adds the user's locale at the end of the URL, which doesn't work.
I sent a message via <http://extensions.libreoffice.org/contact-info>
What indication do you see limiting this bug to 3.5.0 Beta2?
@Rainer, It's the only version the bug is verified in...

"Die Seite existiert leider nicht…"
LibO 3.3.4 (UI de-DE)
Modified 'Version' back to 'unspecified'.
I included a workaround on the server side, by having a RewriteRule as follows:
RewriteRule ^/dictionaries/(.*) http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center?getCategories=Dictionary [R=301,L,NC]
However, sounds like it should be fixed in the program code itself.
The fix works fine with 3.3.3 Portable, 3.4.5RC1, 3.5.0Beta2, all WIN7
We will have to watch that RewriteRule - difference
I added a second rule upon report by Rainer.
Seems some versions use "dictionary" in the URL, others "dictionaries".
This should be fixed in the code, but from the server-side a workaround is in place.
This was fixed in master (before the 3.5.0 branch): http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=70c659f4da5ca10bb36a38e6d1494efe57e09260
Should be cherry picked for 3.4.5 branch.
All running rather quick here, for the additional Master specific part of the problem I submitted "Bug 44178 - Wrong URL for Dictionary Download".
Can you please watch Bug 44178?
Bug 44178 fixed as well by a quick response by Florian.
