They are there already:


We have worked closely with the Fedora Extras packager Phil Compton 
for a long time to make sure Scribus installs and works properly on 
Fedora since Fedora-1 days. He has done a terrific job and the 
scribus rpms are very well done IMO.

For Fedora users, its as simple as:

yum install scribus

I am preparing fc-4 rpms and hope to have them available in 
the next few hours.
