Description Caolán McNamara 2012-05-05 02:48:22 UTC
The autocorrect .dat files in extras/source/autotext/lang/* are zip files of xml streams.

We store them as .zip files in git, which makes it very hard to see what changed from one revision to the next and makes it non-trivial to edit and fix them

Better would be to unpack them, store the contents in git and build the .dat files at build time instead. Which is what we do with the dictionaries and most content that we pack into .zip files.

This would make it easier to fix autocorrect files, e.g. http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=e4bfd2ff060b89b2b7119bcb6a5c6bfb02815601
