Any thoughts?
As far as I could gather from conversations with our master coders, the process seems to be OK, but the firmware mechanism it uses seems to be buggy. The solution is to use the "Never sync dictionaries" patch that's on the dictutil website.

dictutil v0.3.1

This release adds support for installing translation dictionaries with dictutil install (both with built-in and custom locales), updates the documentation, and improves the conversion for the Webster's 1913 dictionary.

See the release on GitHub for more details.

Thanks for all your efforts!

I have especially used dictgen with fantastic results, and your dcumentation of the dictfile format makes it very easy to update my df source and create an improved dictionary on the fly.

PyGlossary now supports dictutil's dictfile as an output format, so you can use it to convert other dictionaries to an editable dictfile without needing to use dictzip-decompile.

dictutil v0.3.2

This release updates my GitHub username in the module name. There isn't any reason to upgrade unless you are embedding dictutil in your application.

See the release on GitHub for more details.
