Hi Kevin,

I think that:

- We should simply strive to keep up with official releases of the
  freedict dictionaries and friends, not try to manage our own;

- The added value of a GNOME-controlled (or Freedesktop-controlled, for
  all I care) dict server is that we can add dictionaries for new
  languages on demand. The current gnome-dictionary default,
  for instance, only offers English dictionaries, which is a bit sparse
  when you consider the number of languages GNOME officially supports.
