   Subject: Funding budget for allowing export from command line
Hi, all.

In a new business I am working on, we are using Inkscape for generate PDF  
files from XML templates (SVG, actually). As we want to generate more complex  
documents (with paragraphs, multiple pages, etc) we have found that Inkscape  
is not enough for us, so we are evaluating Scribus.

The problem is that some features existing in Inkscape are missing in Scribus  
(at least, I have not found them in the version, and bugs related to  
them are still opened):

     * Exporting to PDF from command line using already generated Scribus  
     * A server-mode, in which Scribus keeps launched and listen for export  

The project really need these features from Scribus, so we'd like to provide  
funds for the project so they can be included as soon as possible.

Is there any developer available for this contracted support? As we are  
currently in the process of getting funds from investors, I'd like to know  
what would be the approximated budget for implementing these features, and  
how log it would take (approximately).

Thank you very much for your kind support, and for creating this great  

Best regards
David Marín Carreño
