Recently, tirkarthi (xtreak) works on finding and fixing typos.
And I (18z) came up with the idea of creating a spellcheck bot to improve
the quality of cpython.
We had discussion in https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/13749
And it is summarized below:

To be Solved:
Even after reducing the code checked, there will still be mostly false
High frequency of updating dictionary.txt (false positive typo).
Interfacing the filter with aspell to get some numbers.
The report could be made optional with a spellcheck label.
Code for reducing .py files to strings and comments.
Command line for spellcheck.
There are problems to be solved.
But I think we can always find a better solution.
So, I’ll be working on interfacing the filter with aspell to get some
Looking forward to hearing more opinions. :D
