Any idea on when hunspell-pt-br will be made available for Solus?

não problema, eu tenho isso. As a european portuguese learner I know the differences between pt-PT and pt-BR is like a super hardcore version of the differences between american english and british english.

The only updated pt-BR dictionaries are provided by LibreOffice therefore this ties into T3886

After I installed the libreoffice-common-dictionaries package from Solus repos the Lightproff spell check for PT-BR appeared for me on Libreoffice Writer writing aids option.
I've tested it and it is working, it's highlighting wrong words and suggesting the proper ones.

Looking for a dedicated package maintainer and integrator for this. Request will remain open for one month pending maintainer, otherwise will be closed due to lack of demand.

Yep. How do I create the repository? My only experience is updating existing packages (bleachbit, sequeler ...)

Initialize a git repo locally.
