After doing that you'll have directory called Scribus. Then after installing 
do not delete that directory. You can later use it to upgrade. To upgrade use 
the command below in the Scribus directory. This will only fetch the changed 
files. You should read some cvs introduction to get more info about the 
details. When using the command below you'll see different flags prepended to 
the file names. These will tell you what has happened. man CVS will explain 
you these under the header "Import Output".

cvs -f -q update -d

Your initial checkout line in this message doesn't checkout the 1.3.3.x 
version but 1.3.x. For 1.3.3.x use the branch name Version133x.
