|Summary||0014980: Switch scribus to use public poppler API|
|Description||scribus uses the xpdf compatibility API provided by poppler.|
However, upstream poppler sees this as "unsupported" and changes it when and how they want, see e.g.
Their view is that consumers should use one of the public APIs, i.e. the glib, qt4, qt5, or cpp ones.
Please switch scribus to use one of those. If the API provided by upstream does not fulfill scribus' needs, upstream is willing to talk
(I'm not upstream, I'm just a packager that would like to reduce future breakage.)
