I actually didn't read the article as being a criticism, though having
thought about it some more it could well be taken as such.

For Myself, I have ZERO complaints, sure, some stuff could be better,
thats allways the case even with ( especially with? ) expensive boxed
software. I am frankly amazed at the speed of progress in Scribus.

My main point in bringing it to the list was to ask if the developers
think they would get some benefit from working directly with the other
developers to polish the file interfaces etc, not sure what word I 
need here as am not a developer. I had missed to a large extent
the allready great work you have done with GIMP and Inkscape.
I will go back and practice more with this
I certainly didn't mean to insult anyone and apologize if that
happened. Still think it would be a good idea for the meeting somewhere
nice, simply as a reward for all the great work you guys have done.
