    i see the latest stable release of that dictionary is over two years old
    which means one of two things: it is just absolutely perfect in every
    way, or (since it never got to version 1.x) it is so bug filled, and
    linux has changed so much in those two years that it has been abandoned
    by its maker(s) and will never be perfect..

    i do not know which is correct, but i doubt you will find much support
    for adding it to software.opensuse.org..

    *however* you are free to download the source code and compile it for
    your system....i know i know, that sounds all scary and hard...but,
    really it is only hard the first time (kinda like a cost/benefit
    analysis in an MBA program just keeps getting easier and easier)..

    sorry, i gotta run...now.

    There is no official way to request an application, but you can try the
    factory mail list.
