Moving to cygwin-apps...
(package for consideration - what is the real abbreviation for this? - the
OLOCA is missing something here!)

Okay - i'll make some noise then...
borrowing from the debian layout...
Aspell is a c++ application - this means both cygaspell-15.dll and
aspell.exe are huge due to static libstdc++ linking. I'm thinking this
could also potentially cause problems - but the program appears functional
to my limited usage.
This version of aspell isnt linked against ncurses - I'll look into this,
but unless someone Knows how to do this,
Aspell has no man or info files.
Aspell is just about useless without a dictionary installed
(I'm looking about to look into packaging aspell-en - the configure script
isn't a standard configure script)
aspell comes with two scripts - ispell and spell in /usr/share/aspell
I dont know anything about aspell - I'm only going to do this so someone
does rather the no one.
I can't spell :)
oh - and this is my first multipackage package - be nice ;)
hmmm and i just noticed rlc's email messages - if he wants to take these and
run - yay :)
