There is some older API docs when you download CVS, but they are 
probably out of date already. 

Some general thoughts:

We on the team use IRC a *lot*. So, getting on-line with us can be 
very helpful. 

http://docs.scribus.net has a section for developers. There are docs 
on the scripter API, as well as writing plugins and the 1.2.x file 
format. This might be a good start point for your plans.

We have basically frozen development on 1.2.x, and now treat it as a 
stable code base. Only bug fixes and minor non-invasive features are 

The 1.3.x series is current under very heavy development and is not 
stable for production use. The 1.3.x roadmap is here: 

I hope that helps,
