[scribus] Scribus now ready for our language

Yes, please!

If you could add Anii as one of the languages supported by Scribus (code
is "blo") then it would be available for selection in the "Document
Setup". So far I count only some 35 languages, and we would really
appreciate to get on that list.

Where do I need to register, beg, grovel, plead, fall to my knees,
compliment or bribe, to get Anii supported by Scribus please?

I noticed in 1.5.3 that Hunspell is handled as a plug-in and we got a
good grip on Hunspell. So I just found in the new help for 1.5.3 that it
has gotten really manageable: Have a working and well configured
Hunspell for Anii; install Scribus; it will find the dictionary or the
user will tweak some path-information and all-is-well.

So to allow this, we would "just" need our language added to the
available list.

Please check our the success stories 2016: The Anii people love Scribus!

thank you,
