Hello Christoph.
Thanks for the kind words.

I'll have a look at PyQt. Is it well packaged and available for MacOSX?
That would be an additional point to motivate me as Tk is not. (issue: PyQt
GUI <https://github.com/berteh/ScribusGenerator/issues/75>)

Any suggestions to make it more use-friendly? is it a matter of GUI, or the
documentation, or the way variables are used, or what else? (issue: more
user friendly <https://github.com/berteh/ScribusGenerator/issues/76>)

ODS as in Libre/OpenOffice spreadsheet format? Why this one in particular?
... considering this particular software has a flawless csv export it's
really just a matter of clicking "save as" and picking the right format.
What "other fields" do you have in mind? (issue: ODS support

Translation: no clue, not familiar with i18n in Python yet. Will look into
it too. (issue: translation

Any help is welcome on those points for anyone interested.
