You can reach them on the FR list, they are part of our community since
a long time. But adding the code won't be enough, there is a lot of work

Have you considered a link-up with Wiktionary. A collaboration with an
established crowd-sourcing initiative such as Wiktionary could mitigate
at least some of the issues of man-power you highlight.

Furthermore such a collaboration could lead to more feature rich
dictionary and thesaurus, as part of LibreOffice. A dictionary that
corporates definitions, pronunciation guides and etymological
information as well as alternative spellings (etc...)

Just my tuppence!
