Stardict is used by many people and works fine except for minor issues.
I'm not sure I'll fix bug 568472, since this may require a lot of coding and result will be non-stable in the long run: google often changes API of their services. As for dictionaries: - I'm interested in dicts only from download.huzheng.org, since other sorces are not reliable and legal status of many (most?) dictionaries is unclear. - Many users (including myself) install dictionaries themselves, outside of portage control. - Please note for the future: app-dicts/stardict-* packages can be used not only by stardict, but by sdcv and goldendict as well, so not be hasty to remove them :) Best regards, Andrew Savchenko
