I was not aware of this site. Nice resource, thanks for the link!

Right. I did not know that because hunspell-dict-pt_BR, and the one I 
just submitted, -sv_SE, although they use the hunspelldict port group 
they override the download location to fetch from LibreOffice instead.

If the intent is to use this new naming convention moving forward, I can 
rename the ports I maintain to match.
