Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-07-21 18:19:20 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to
address this request at this time. Red Hat invites you to
ask your support representative to propose this request, if
appropriate and relevant, in the next release of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux. If you would like it considered as an
exception in the current release, please ask your support

Comment 3 Shing-Shong Shei 2011-07-21 18:28:29 UTC
Well, we have been using RHEL for years and it always bundled with dictionaries for aspell.  For example, on RHEL 5# yum list aspell\*
Loaded plugins: aliases, changelog, dellsysid, downloadonly, fastestmirror, filter-data, keys, kmod, list-data, protect-packages,

An aspell without any bundled dictionaries is USELESS.  I view this as an oversight of RHEL 6.

Comment 4 Peter Schiffer 2011-11-02 13:26:29 UTC
aspell package was replaced by hunspell in RHEL 6. See:

# yum list hunspell\*
