I looked at that and noted several things:
- it's based on 1.4.3 stable, not 1.5 development
- it uses an old version of Harfbuzz
- it uses an ad-hoc method of reordering glyphs after layout which AFAICT looses the link between glyph and character position.

I'm currently working on integrating current Harfbuzz with Scribus 1.5 and would welcome any help with that. 
The first thing I'm working on is separating the StoryText from the glyph storage.

If you are interested we can set up a shared git repository for that work.

Best regards,
