Hi Tom,

It's short and sweet!

Can I suggest you hyphenate the text so the type will stand out 
better? I would also suggest to use curly quotes and em dashes to 
achieve a more professional look. You could even use italic for the 
quote from Sourceforge.

I find the margins to be very narrow. I wonder how this will come out 
from a regular printer. Also, the upper and lower blue bands are 
bleed and this will definitely challenge the printer. Anyhow, I would 
suggest you actually print the flyer and fold it to make sure it is 
to your exact taste. Some margins adjustments may be needed.

As a general note on many other works done with Scribus is some 
(many?) users seem to be unaware of the hyphenation capabilities of 
the program. Although not perfect (and Scribus is not alone on that 
field), the hyphenation engine works well and in many languages. 
Hyphenating text is a way to avoid bigger than necessary blank holes 
in some lines of text.

Just a few hints.
