RE: [cross-project-issues-dev] neighbour vs. neighbor


did you ever think about importing your own user dictionary in the
Preferences? There are nice wordlists available for free, OpenOffice
uses these as well.

Also, with the mouse on your underlined word, you can use the Ctrl+1
quickfix "add to user dictionary" to fit your needs.

Finally, you are writing to a developer mailing list for cross-project
coordination, which does not seem the right place for such requests.
Discussing this on the Platform Newsgroup, or filing a bugzilla
enhancement request against Platform : Text seems more appropriate in
case you'd really like to suggest the Eclipse SDK to ship with a
different default dictionary.

Note, though, that Eclipse is more about open source FRAMEWORKS than
fully tailored products. So, a vendor selling commercial products on top
of Eclipse would be the right place to request different default
