congratulations robert!

you've just been added to the complex script working group!

more seriously, the core developers team is currently not actively 
working (mostly lack of time) on improving the support of non latin 
languages, but they accept patches and can give some hints on how to 
work on the support of complex script languages.

on the other side, lately there have been a few requests of people 
willing to contribute code for support of non latin languages (or having 
working code that they want to see included in the scribus trunk).
in parallel, kunda (who will for sure read these lines) wanted to create 
community working groups.

so: let's do it!

now, we need to know who (else) wants to be part this working group! :-)
