In a word - no, sorry, several :-) - a decent search engine.
Your suggestion of:
or this one:

is fine _if_you_know_where_to_look_.

I think it was the docs search which INSISTED on putting a space 
between "scribus" and "-" so I couldn't look for "scribus-ng" but 
only for "scribus".
Try looking for something about wrapping text around image frames, 
using any term you can think of.  I found this a fruitless task.  
(I have since played with and found it in properties)
I found the docs.scribus.net to be well laid out but not useful 
for anything beyond THE simplest things.  The wiki uses a logic 
with which I am not familiar, but a good search engine would 
solve that problem.  The mail archive appears not to have a 
search facility at all.
Only guessing, but my feeling is that if good search facilities 
were in those three areas much angst and "newbie questions" on 
this list would vanish.
