The Upper Sorbian hyphenation patterns sorhyph.tex are problematic for
. The copyright says
% Non-commercial usage and usage in TeX-related programs only
% Packaging with commercial stuff only with written permission
% of the author
I'm quite sure that the author is willing to change this into
something more liberate.
. There is no language.sor.dat.
. It is part of the hyphen-german bundle which is bad IMHO. While
the area where Upper Sorbian is spoken (the Lausitz valley) is
indeed in Germany, the language itself is a Slavic one and not
related to German.
I suggest to create a separate `hyphen-usorbian' bundle.
BTW, checking the various hyphenation patterns in other bundles I see
that the following files don't have a proper .dat entry:
Additionally I suggest the following:
. Remove the files lahyph7.tex and lahyph8.tex since lahyph.tex is a
merger of the former two files.
. Remove ithyphen2.tex since it is an old version of ithyph.tex.
. Move hyph_hu.dic into the doc tree (or remove it completely).
. Move ghyph31.README and ghyphen.README into the doc tree.
. Move bahyph.sh into the doc tree (or remove it completely).
Another problem is package hyphen-interlingua and hyphen-icelandic:
There is neither a file iahyphen.tex nor icehyph.tex!
