Hello Hans

i'm not a developer and just did actually 2 or 3 patch. I would say we
mainly use Qtcreator.

I don't know if debugging or small functionnalities interest you, but i
guess having a look at the bug tracker might be a good place to begin with.

I think the text engine is may be not the easiest, but there are so much
thing to do on text that, like you i'd like to know how to work on some
part of it, particularly styles/properties as well as export.

May be cezaryece who has done so much last month on this could give some
clues or you could have a look at his scribus-ece repository and do some
diffs to understand how it is done.

Are you on IRC sometimes ?

Hope it helps
