My previous discussions with Ubuntu users led me to believe that waiting for
the first "your scribus Breezy package doesn't run on Dapper anymore" report
would be a prudent path to take :). Alternatively, I could convert my hoary
chroot into a dapper chroot, or accept the corresponding time, disk space, and
bandwidth expenditures just to provide a Dapper repository, which would be
virtually identical to the Breezy repository at the moment. I'd rather work on
the introduction of a new package that would track the bleeding edge
development code from the 1.3.x tree.

Well, I've been supporting hoary and breezy and they weren't identical, so
this solution doesn't seem reasonable. I'd also like to minimize the changes
for people already using the repositories.
