Ok proposal for group,
first the representatives:
  RTL: Mossab
  CJK: Hans
  Scribus code code refactoring: Andreas

* Code refactoring on PDF Extraction is needed before moving forward with
Mossab's RTL patch improvements
* CJK scripter that can implement Hans's consultations before
implementation of RTL
* Any other interested parties that have skills that can aid this process

How's that?
