I like scribus it has served us well generating a series of PDFs from a csv file ver 1.5.8 windows 10 platform
in the past it worked well generating 365 pdf files for our daily outputs for 1 year.
Now when we revised the template ~ 5M of data per PDF occationally it runs well and makes all 365 files takes about 15 minutes but when we wanted to start genreating these files on a yearly basis the program crashes at about 13 or 14 files for all of our sla files which used to run ok in an early mode.
tried a lot of amateur fixes nothing has fixed the problem so far so I have to come to the gurus.
I'm happy to review all of these changes, potentially all for 1.7.0 codebase, and some, maybe all for 1.6.1. We're waiting on one last thing to release 1.6.0 which is the French UI translation. Once that's done by Jean, we'll release it. After that, we can look at all of this stuff. Thank you for reviewing those scripter functions.

fixing the docstrings is for sure a good thing. but i find it hard to follow the all the changes you're suggesting.
since you're already using gitlab, would you mind creating a new branch with the changes, create a merge request and adding the link in here?
then we can start a review on gitlab with inline comments attached to the specific lines of code.
sadly it's not (yet) possible to accept merge requests, but if you're as lazy as i am, you can add a .diff to the url and create a diff that you can download and use for uploading to the scribus bug tracker : - )
