I've been analyzing Niyam's tutorial for the Wiki. It has its 
detractions, it has its limitations, but what you see in the end in this 
example is quite an array of demonstrated operations in Scribus. Until 
you begin to see what it was that he did, you cannot see what he may 
have not done or left out, or simply what might be improved upon.
Here is what I have so far:    
I think that many will agree that, aside from conversion/updating this 
tutorial, there are other and more advanced features of Scribus which 
also could and should be included, so ultimately we need to know what 
this project lacks -- this may or may not be more pages, but it will 
likely be more kinds of objects.
There is also some repetitiveness that /might/ be trimmed a bit, and 
generally one could say that this is a literal, explicit project -- the 
creativity is all Niyam's, so it comes out as "make this thing here, 
with this content, this size and position, do it this way..." rather 
than encouraging experimentation.
