And that's make me feel bad because women should feel OK on scribus lists.
With its latest Complex Text Layout developpements, Scribus opens its user base to a new half of the world.
Let's not forget that women are also one half of the humans.
How many of them are speaking on that list ?
How many of them are proposing patches ?
Very very few.
Inclusiveness and respect matters.
