This list is probably supposed to be a nice place too for questions
and answers and any sharings related to scirbus code dans dev.
It enables more people to take part so it might be a good think
to share more on this list so as to develop the scribus contributors

Some research has been done on indic writing that you will find in the
mail archives but afaik its not finished.

The bug tracker is full of bugs, some of them being easyer
for your first steps.
Then, since you are a python programmer, there is a nice
but unfinished new python scripter extension
that might land in scribus 1.5 but that needs debuging first,
and expanding too,
and it might be a particularly suitable part for your second steps...
Thanks too !
