Hello everybody !

I am currently about to release a spell-checker for Maninka (a West African language, mainly spoken in Guinea). This language is written in the N'ko script, a Right-to-left language like Arabic and others. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N%27Ko_alphabet


This requires two things:

1) the script should be listed in the list of Complex scripts (Linguistic options/Language) alongside Hindi, Arabic, etc. - a similar list is displayed in Format/character for "complex script font / language"
I have the same requirement for Libre Office.


2) the value "nqo-GN" (official for N'ko) should be accepted as a Locale in the spell-checker's dictionaries.xcu file
    <prop oor:name="Locales" oor:type="oor:string-list">
       <value>nqo-GN</value>
    </prop>
NOTE :
this works well in Libre Office, I mean : it is displayed as "N'ko" in the list of Languages for choice in Format/character for complex scripts, and it has the spellcheck green "checked" icon.

This is the desired behavior, it does not work currently in Open Office 4.1.3. However, if I pretend my spell checker is for ar-SA (Arabic (Saudi Arabia), it will display the green "checked" icon, and work properly as a N'ko spellchecker. However this is very bad diplomacy...

What is the process to get this acted upon ? Possibly this is not the right place to post...
Anything I can do to help, I will, of course!

Thanks for help & advice.
