I have gone through the links as suggested by mentors, and I would like to
confirm that bug 37932
<>(it's mentioned
about developing an smartart feature but not clearing which
charts/diagrams/shapes should be included in the period of GSoC) and bug
92902 <>(Auto-Layout
for flowcharts and automatic flowcharts) are the deliverables for "SmartArt
editing in impress". As well as apart from bug 72771
<> (Automation
feature to automate the flowcharting process saving time and increasing
productivity) is there any other deliverable for "Block diagram" also.

Moreover If I could know whether Implementation of Smartart should be from
scratch or it is already present( I couldn't see smartart feature in lo,
Not talking about the extension). If there's any information that I should
know, please let me know.

Thanking you,
Ekansh Jha
