That's exactly why I included the disclaimer in parentheses. I suppose a 
link on the Wiki would be sufficient to make clear that some work is 
already done and the wheel need not be reinvented. I was more interested 
in getting translations printed, not the original, provided Peter, you 
and whoever contributed to the docs agree on it.

Moreover, I was writing about some kind of "official" documentation. 
This "official" documentation can only be provided by the scribus team. 
I think the share alike license allows for copying into the docs, and if 
enough knowledge can be assembled on the Wiki, so much better for the 
official docs. But the document outline would be incomplete without even 
mentioning the work that is already done.

To prevent copying, however, do you think it would be better to add 
links to the official docs, instead of offering an editable page? That 
might be a reasonable solution.
