[Snowball-discuss] French stemmer doesn't stem "arrivons" nor "arrivent"

Hello list,

I tried the French stemmer on the present tense forms of a common and
regular French verb, "arriver", and got these results:

arrive => arriv
arrives => arriv
arrive => arriv
arrivons => arrivon
arrivez => arriv
arrivent => arrivent

I emailed Richard Boulton about this and he called this a surprising
omission. Is there anyone who could tell me if this omission has a
reason, and if it could be fixed?
If you reply to this message, please Cc to my address (champoll atsign
