Dear Barbara,

I’m not sure whether the patterns should have exceptions for LibreOffice
and OpenOffice.

I must confess that English hyphenation is magic to me (I understand
hyphenation in German, Latin and ancient Greek [and of course, in
Spanish]). But English hyphenation is beyond my understanding.

So I submit the issue to your consideration (maybe "Li-bre-Office" and
"Open-Office" should be the right hyphenation points for those words).

Many thanks for your help
