Could it be possible to keep track of the changes (just by the paragraph 
headings would be fine) so I could rapidly maintain the French 
translation of the tutorial. I did the translation of the 1st version, 
back in 2004 and would like to keep it up-to-date.

Thanks! Wonderful! Thanks again! :)

But, Maciej, wouldn't it better to keep this "Freedom Yug" document in 
the state it was done and add to it instead? The text is all about Open 
Source and the situation that prevails in small villages in India if I 
remember well. I found that text to be interesting, informative and with 
a touch of exotism for a North American, plus, it was inspiring ? there 
is a lot of people out there that are not aware (still) of FOSS! Can I 
say these 8 pages (or so) weren't the "tutorial" in itself but a 
effective way to demonstrate the capabilities of Scribus with the help 
of the tutorial? So, yes, the structure of it has to do with the 
tutorial, but the content is Nyam's personnal touch. If anything, I 
would keep it as it is and add new pages to show new features if needed. 
The tutorial itself (the OO.o file) can (needs) of course be edited 
thoroughly. Maybe you will have better ideas! I can still be convinced. 
It's only my personnal view on this. :)
