Well, IMO our website says just about everything there is to know about hypenation patterns. Even a link to the most important source for hypenation patterns is there. One possibility for the community is to create a project at SourceForge (or somewhere else) to put hyphenation patterns which cannot be distributed by the ASF. > Also, I don't know how I can be of use, but if there's anything I can > do in this regard (e.g., take a text blurb and 'apply' it to a set of > files), I'd be happy to help.

Also, simply send in patches for the documentation as you see possibilities for improvement. I don't think you have to care about the relicensing issues. We can handle that. Just continue doing what you do. That way you already help a lot. If you want to do even more, you could buy yourself a good beginners guide to Java. Jeremias Maerki
