Ok, thank you, I'm sitting right now in front of my brand new Gentoo desktop, compiling Scribus 1.2.2cvs  and wondering, how easy it was to get everything I need up and running. Setting up my network, firewall, X with Nvidia, sound with Alsa and Skype, etc, etc, everything went smoothly and without any quirks... 

In particular, I was struck by the quality of the Gentoo documentation, both the official and the unofficial. Speaking of the latter, the GNU FDL'd, multilingual and maintained by Gentoo users Gentoo-Portage Wiki is a unique treasury of knowledge -- I wonder, I we could have something like that for the Scribus community. To start with, we could use some of the most interesting mails from this list for the initial "Tips & Tricks" and "Howtos" -- there have been quite a few interesting exchange of views here that could be easily transform into suitable docs.

What do you think of that? 


P.S. Here is another gorgeous Wiki, I use extensively:
