jain was already contacted and is having family issues. This seems to be
a recurrent problem, so it seems unrealistic to think that he will
suddenly become available to contribute. Off and on contribution is not
helpful to the project.

Surely henning knows Scribus is still here and presumably he's taken a
look at Scripter2 from time to time.

Scripter2 needs someone to take charge of it and either have the time to
fix/improve it or be able to organize a few people to tackle it, perhaps
including jain and henning if and when they are available. That said,
waiting for joao's input might bring us an even better Scripter2+ with
further enhancements.

Let's face it, Scripter2 seems to be an orphan no one wants to adopt.
