NAME

vim-spell.eclass - Eclass for managing Vim spell files.  

DESCRIPTION

How to make a vim spell file package using prebuilt spell lists from upstream (${CODE} is the language's two letter code):

* Get the ${CODE}.*.spl, ${CODE}.*.sug (if your language has them) and
  README_${CODE}.txt files. Currently they're at
  ftp://ftp.vim.org/pub/vim/unstable/runtime/spell/ (except for English,
  which should be taken from CVS instead).

* Stick them in vim-spell-${CODE}-$(date --iso | tr -d - ).tar.bz2 . Make sure
  that they're in the appropriately named subdirectory to avoid having to mess
  with S=.

* Upload the tarball to the Gentoo mirrors.

* Add your spell file to package.mask next to the other vim things. Vim
  Project members will handle unmasking your spell packages when vim comes out
  of package.mask.

* Create the app-vim/vim-spell-${CODE} package. You should base your ebuild
  upon app-vim/vim-spell-en. You will need to change VIM_SPELL_LANGUAGE,
  KEYWORDS and LICENSE. Check the license carefully! The README will tell
  you what it is.

* Don't forget metadata.xml. You should list the Vim project and yourself
  as maintainers. There is no need to join the Vim project just for spell
  files. Here's an example of a metadata.xml file:


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE pkgmetadata SYSTEM "https://www.gentoo.org/dtd/metadata.dtd">
    <pkgmetadata>
       <maintainer type="person">
               <email>your@email.tld</email>
               <name>Your Name</name>
       </maintainer>
       <maintainer type="project">
               <email>vim@gentoo.org</email>
               <name>Vim Maintainers</name>
       </maintainer>


        <longdescription lang="en">

                Vim spell files for French (fr). Supported character sets are

                UTF-8 and latin1.

        </longdescription>

    </pkgmetadata>

* Send an email to vim@gentoo.org to let us know.

Don't forget to update your package as necessary.

If there isn't an upstream-provided pregenerated spell file for your language yet, read :help spell.txt from inside vim for instructions on how to create spell files. It's best to let upstream know if you've generated spell files for another language rather than keeping them Gentoo-specific.
