    What is hunspell-dictionaries-1-7-2004 ?

    Hi,

    I was investigating the list of installed snaps on my computer and stumbled upon

    hunspell-dictionaries-1-7-2004 added in the Snapstore by "林博仁(Buo-ren, Lin) (brlin)"

    Where is this coming from? Is this safe? Can I remove it?


    Thanks

    Description: spell checker and morphological analyzer (program)
     Hunspell is a spell checker and morphological analyzer library and program
     designed for languages with rich morphology and complex word compounding or
     character encoding. It is based on MySpell and features an Ispell-like
     terminal interface using Curses library, an Ispell pipe interface and an
     OpenOffice.org UNO module.
     .
     Main features:
      - Unicode support (first 65535 Unicode characters)
      - morphological analysis (in custom item and arrangement style)
      - Max. 65535 affix classes and twofold affix stripping (for agglutinative
        languages, like Azeri, Basque, Estonian, Finnish, Hungarian, Turkish, etc.)
      - Support complex compoundings (for example, Hungarian and German)
      - Support language specific algorithms (for example, handling Azeri
        and Turkish dotted i, or German sharp s)
      - Handling conditional affixes, circumfixes, fogemorphemes,
        forbidden words, pseudoroots and homonyms.
     .
     This package contains the program with the Ispell-like terminal and pipe
     interfaces.
    With realization of one's own potential and self-confidence in one's ability, one can build a better world.

    I'm more worried about the snap maintainer as it's not someone official with a checkmark. Also, can you shed some light on how it got installed in the first place? Maybe it was required by some other snap? Also, not fully sure, but your command seems to output info about a package in the regular repositories (I would have no problem with those), whereas I'm worried about the snap and its maintainer.

    Thanks

    An impossible ask since we don't know what you have installed.

    If you are fine letting us know what snaps you have, post results of:
    Code:
    snap list
    …I'm worried about the snap and its maintainer…
    A legitimate concern IMO. Let's see what the results of the "list" command reveals.

    Re: What is hunspell-dictionaries-1-7-2004 ?

    How about looking at 'snap info hunspell-dictionaries-1-7-2004' ? It says it only contains the dictionaries without any program (that should be easy enough to check ... just look in the relevant subdirectory of /snap where the contents are mountedd) and is meant for other snaps that have hunspell compiled in as a library. That way you don't have to bring along several MB of dictionaries with each snap that could use them. There's also a link in the description to a description of the content-interface for snaps which is what makes this work.
