Thanks!  Any pointer to what the files with different extensions are? 
Here is what I guess

   .pat      plain patterns
   .chr      the set of characters used in the pattern file
   .hyp      hyphenation exceptions
   .lic      license

Is that correct?

What of those four files should be part of a contribution, e.g., is the 
.chr file automatically generated from the .pat file or is it in the 
responsibility of the contributor?

Where should contributed files be committed?  (In case I can manage to 
recover my account data for the svn.)

Best regards,
Stephan Hennig
