i've never meant to say that every patch must be accepted with no 
consideration of its quality.

but the contributor deserves a fast answer: accepted or refused.
and if refused, what has to be improved (if it can be improved...)

the size of the active scribus team is shrinking from year to year, 
giving a bit of care to the ones that want to be part of it, could help 
keeping the project alive!
seriously, currently if one of jean or craig stops working on scribus, 
the project is dead.
even if one of them or both have slightly less time for scribus (or is 
on holidays) nothings happens anymore.

in the last few months, we have had several people who have shown their 
interest in contributing to scribus: let's try not to lose them!
