[Scribus] Linux Format UK LGM 2006 Review

I am only talking about getting the message "en masse", and allowing others 
to get a feel for, and understand what they can do with this, and other 
software.  Since the next version of Scribus is going to be big, and there 
will be a lot of changes, we can get the word out another way.  If we work 
on doing a write up of Scribus (when the new version comes out), and work to 
get the story into our local papers, then we could make a difference with no 
costs.  I am sure that there is a Tech section in all the local papers which 
we can enter the story into.

If we wanted, we can have people do write ups, and the best few write-ups 
can be placed into the download section of the website where we can then 
download and submit to the newspapers.

These are just thoughts, and I am not looking to start wars and such.  I am 
always thinking, and today, this is it.
