It looks like this patch felt through the cracks. Do not hesitate to
send a friendly ping after one or two weeks if no one responds.

It sounds good.

Feel free to start a discussion about it.

We do not use Github releases, because they are not stable. You should
use `git-fetch` here:
(commit (string-append "v" version))))
(file-name (git-file-name name version))
with an appropriate hash.

Nitpick: missing space between ";;" and "Make".

I don't think this input is necessary. `python-build-system' should
provide it already, shouldn't it?

Nitpick: spurious spaces.

You need two spaces after full stops in Texinfo.
Also, would it make sense to package pyenchant and add it as
a dependency? It's not a blocker though.
Could you send an updated patch?
