Sorry for the delayed reply. I'm prepared to do this with the backup
of the Scribus core members.

I notice that we would have to submit the application within two days
so time is short. I've created a GSOC profile (terry.burton at gmail.com,
terryburton) which isn't currently associated with any registered
organisations. If folk are happy to proceed then it somebody is able
to add me to the existing Scribus organisation then I'll take care of
preparing the project proposal and run it by the team before final

All the best,
