I hope the author has subscribed to the Scribus-dev list; this would be
a good start.
There is no barrier to anyone getting involved with Scribus. The
starting point is typically getting a look at the code and getting a
sense of how it works.
What we are always open to are proposals on how to make some process
better, whether it's more efficient code or an idea on how some new
method might work from the users perspective, such as more easily
changing fonts and styles.
If there are coders available, this may work even better.

You might start out by making some suggestions about some changes that
would be useful, so the development team has some idea of where you
would like to go with this. We can always use help in the area of CJK fonts.
