swedish (1.4.2-0.1) unstable; urgency=low
* Experimental package after the dictionaries policy proposal. Please
see the policy document for details on the changes. 
Micce, I changed the conflicts in dictionaries-common control file to
(<=1.4.2). That way you can decide the new version number, be if 2.0.0
as we spoke, or whatever else. I have put this pakage a NMU number 
with debian revision even if the package is native to make that easier.
* Removed old templates files for wswedish. All that work is currently 
done by dictionaries-common itself. We may need some of the localized 
templates, but since they will not be exactly the same, I prefer to
restart from scratch.
* Added a Pspell-Ispell entry to the file.
