David, don't worry about it.
We know Mantis has its disadvantages and I guess our handling of issues
could be more systematic, too. I think you did everything right.
MrB and mrdocs routinely recommend updating for the latest stable
version of Scribus (and of ghostscript, and Adobe Reader), because that
solves a lot of errors and is best for all (users have working software
and developers don't have to bother with reports about old bugs).
I think this routine was kind of misguided wrt. to your RFE.
As for debian resources, malex puts a lot of work into providing debian
packages for the most recent stable and unstable Scribus releases.
Scribus 1.2.3 has been available for two weeks now, details are at
Our advice is not to rely on the normal debian distribution channel for
optaining Scribus but to use our own repository at debian.scribus.net .
