Diction and style checkers for english and german texts

Official package sites : ·

GNU diction and style are free implementations of old standard unix commands, that are not available on many modern systems, because they have been unbundled. Diction prints wordy and commonly misused phrases. Style analyses surface characteristics of a document, e.g. sentence length and various readability measures, but unlike the original code, it lacks sentence type, word usage and most sentence beginning processing. Both commands support English and German documents.

proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H.
