Subject: [Scribus] What do you think about a Scribus Server?


I would like to add to the discussion of new ideas for the "Google  
Summer of Code 2007".

What do you think about a Scribus Server version? The basic idea is  
similar to the one of the Adobe InDesign Server. A Scribus Server  
would be a server based publishing solution without any user  
interface. Documents would be generated by connecting to the server  
and sending XML messages.

The advantages of such a server would be:

- maximum platform independence (as there is no user interface to  
- maximum language independence (you may choose any programming  
language to connect to the server)
- creating the possibility to embed Scribus into an automated  
publishing workflow
- total flexibility to create interfaces to anything (databases,  
graphic libraries, CMS, etc...)

It should be possible to fulfill any task with the server, which can  
be done with the mouse driven UI.
What do you think?

I would love to learn more about this.  Would the Scribus client connect to
the server application, or would we use a Web address to connect to the
server which would then give us the application in a web page?
