New croation dic file

I would like to update croatian hunspell dictionary. As far as I can see, it hasn't been updated since 2010. I've made few corrections but they are rather cosmetic. This dictionary is one of the ugliest out there, that's for sure. The .aff file is unusable and everything should be build from strach -- and that is not gonna happen in 2016.

So to buy some time I've:

- converted .aff to UTF8 to match .dic encoding
- removed nonsenses like "word1yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyword2" or "wordyyyyy."
- added 123 new words
- added some new classes to .aff (just because I could not use default ones, nothing fancy)
- tried to improve suggestions by adding a REP section

Can't say I'm proud on the work done but it should do for now.

And one more thing: is this the proper way to do this kind of updates?

Hi, I added Andras in CC, put it on New.
@Andras, could you take care of adding it or let Kruno know how to proceed? Thanks a lot in advance - Sophie

Kruno, are you Krunoslav Šebetić? In that case we have your license statement (http://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/l10n/msg06398.html)

Otherwise, please send your license statement, and we can integrate your work. Thanks!

Yes, that's me, tend to get rid of e-mails that start to get to much spam. Sory for that.

And is this a proper way of doing this kind of updates? Am I in the right section category etc.?

It's fine, I moved it to localization, the linguistic component is for code, but we don't care much about categorization.
