a) The target document is in English (USA).

b) The target document is in my first language.

c) I am using the spell check built into LibreOffice 5 and I also
sometimes use GNU Aspell.

d) I haven't made any modifications yet. There are some technical
proper nouns that get tagged as misspelled, but I don't even tell the
checker that the word is spelled right beyond a local scope if
possible. If not possible I just ignore the flag.

What upstream project does the grammar checking come from?
