Follow-up Comment #10, bug #63076 (project groff):

[comment #9 comment #9:]
> I've done my research and it turns out that usually no additional spacing is
added after a sentence ending. This means that the patch I sent previously
does not require any modifications.

Ok, cool.

> I've attached an example _ms_ document that makes use of the language file.

This is helpful, thanks.  It might become the basis of a unit test so we can
be sure we keep Russian language support working.
> If there a chance this addition will end up in the 1.23.0 release if the
patch is correct and there is still an interest in adding the feature?

There, I have bad news--I'm afraid not.  It's taken quite a while to get 1.23
solidified for release, we've had 2 more release candidates, and I am hoping
the next tag will be for 1.23.0 final.

Also, groff 1.23.0 missed the freeze for the next Debian stable release, so
that sucks.

However, I very much do not want another four years to pass before we release
groff again, and I don't see anything in your patch that would preclude it
from a 1.23.1 release.  I'd like for that to happen 3 to 6 months after 1.23.0
final, whenever that happens.   (Our GNU maintainer Bertrand Garrigues has to
do the tagging, official archive generation, and upload--he's delegated other
release management tasks to me in preparation for me becoming the next
