It's plain to us that you haven't even read the description of the
task, as it clearly says that the library is implemented in C++ (Python
is only needed for OLEToy, a tool we use to help us with reverse-
engineering). In addition, you're very late; you were supposed to
appear during the previous phase. Nevertheless, we'll give you a chance
to qualify: There are two PageMaker documents in, one in 6.5 and the other
in 6(.0) format. Kindly download them and fix the libpagemaker code so
they are displayed correctly. Once you've done that, we can talk about

Hoping to see your change requests (and potential pull requests for
oletoy) at your earliest possible convenience.
