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.

You could try to get a few people together to create that place where
people can download additional hyphenation patterns. 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.
