Hello again,

As I got to know from your IRC channel  (from tbonfort ) that  Harfbuzz
support on Mapserver is already about to get implemented and they are
planning to complete it before GSoC time span, I am not going to work on
this idea any further. Thanks to all those who supported and gave
suggestions. Also, me as well as the other SMC volunteers are really
looking forward for this new addition to Mapserver and would be more that
happy to help Mapnik community with Harfbuzz integration, especially on the
testing part.

our irc channel is #smc-project on freenode.
