It's a bit like running a stable f11 with a rawhide kde, except that you can choose which level you want to work at. I have one system that has both the unstable and unstable-testing enabled. Packages that behave well and cause ew problems go into the main fedora repo shortly after, so you are not missing anything. > Can someone explain all this?

As has been explained, the developer decided against putting a dictionary into the package. Now that may look nonsense to you, but to the rest of the world having an en-US dictionary installed is not helpful. :-) > Any further testimony on this matter.

As long as it is documented that you have to install dictionaries, and it is, I personally think that's OK. I don't actually remember doing it, but obviously I must have seen the documentation and done it, since it is working fine.
