Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2012-08-02 16:45:41 UTC
Right now in the region panel, if a user chooses a language or input source they don't get things like spell checking dictionaries and other language support packages installed.

We should probably have some packagekit integration to make this more seamless, especially since install media is often space constrained and does ship these addons out of the box.

See a thread on fedora-desktop-list here:

It's pretty comparable to fonts I think. So might may sense to do "just in time" and not in the control-center.
