==Enhancement of Indic Language Support in Scribus==
 
===Project Description===
 
Scribus is an Open Source program that brings professional page layout to Linux/UNIX. Find more about scribus here. Indic Languages are not supported completely in Scribus as of now. As a result of the work done by a group of developers from India, there is a branch available in Scribus public git repo which supports Indic Languages. The aim of this idea is to Enhance the Indic language support solving the following issues:
 
* Harfbuzz is being used as a thrid party code in Scribus. Maintaining thirdparty code is a tedious task, this should be added as a dependency instead.
* Enhance hyphenation by adding hyphenation rules.
 
'''Expertise Required:''' Good understanding of C, C++, Qt, Harfbuz etc, cmake.
