Hi, Kevin.

I'm the Debian scowl package maintainer.

The attached bug report was filed, some time ago, against version 5 of
scowl in Debian, but I see (most if not all of) the same words exist
in version 6.

I see that (apparently) Mllly and Qulllon are real proper names,
because Google finds them in various baby-names dictionaries (unless,
perhaps, those name lists were generated from the scowl Proper Names
lists ;).  The others are all in the .95 files, which are not likely
to be useful for spell checking anyway.

So please let us know whether any of these are legitimate mistakes and
whether you plan to change them; if not, I'll just close the bug
report.  Thanks.

Please retain the cc:'s to [email protected] 
and [email protected] when you reply.  Thanks.

Package: scowl
Version: 5-4
Severity: minor

I happened to run "grep lll" on my system wordlist, and noticed some
bogus words.  Running "pcregrep -rn '(.)\1\1' /usr/share/dict/scowl"
shows many similar cases.  Of course some are legit (placenames such
as Kaaawa or Kinrossshire, acronyms or Roman numerals, compounds
like headmistressship or wallless, etc); and now that babies are
being deliberately given names such as "Andeee" or "Minnnie" it's
hard to see where the cut-off point is for filtering those.  But
here's a list of the remaining words I definitely don't believe in:
