Subject: O: spell -- GNU Spell, a clone of Unix `spell'
Date: Tue, 27 Sep 2005 00:15:44 +0200
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the spell package.

The package description is:
 GNU Spell is a spell checking program which prints each misspelled
 word on a line of its own.  It is designed as a clone of the standard
 Unix `spell' program, and implemented as a wrapper for Ispell.  Spell
 accepts as its arguments a list of files to read from.  Within that
 list, the magical file name `-' causes Spell to read from standard
 input.  In addition, when called with no file name arguments, Spell
 assumes that it should process standard input.

 Code needs to be adapted/rewritten for the bugs reported and I have
 not enough time to do it.
