That is fine. This should probably be checked with some LO developer/expert.

Excellent! Could you build both a 3.4.1-based release (with the passive component changes) and one based on the newest sources? Even though there are probably few users of the older version, it could be a nice service of backwards compatibility / OOo compatibility for the languages supported. But if in doubt or short on time, the newest LO-voikko source code is most important to us.

3659 is a very old version, and there are a number of bug fixes and improvements made later. I noticed when I checked the svn log that I haven’t been using the latest version either - I have made notes for the Mac binaries I have built that I have used hfst-ospell svn revision 3678. There are a number of bug fixes and improvements also after this version. I will recompile with the lastest hfst-ospell, and test that on the Mac.
