Maybe what the Scribus crew need more than anything is some proper 
marketing of their product. Once 1.4 is release, they should put 
together a press kit to send out to the major Linux and DTP magazines. 
Maybe put in some printed examples made  with Scribus, and some 
tutorials for them to review and print. Right now, Linux Format is doing 
a series on Inkscape. Perhaps they can be convinced to do the same with 
Scribus to get the word out about what it is capable of.

Just a thought.
