The donate page to Scribus hosted anduin servers is encrypted, however as the 
note reads on the top of the page, it is held within a subframe on the page. 
This frame is encrypted.

Eirik has graciously supported Scribus via his servers since I joined. I have 
know him since long before that, and when I joined the dev team a few years 
ago one of the first things I did was to set up the Mantis tracker using his 
servers, and since then have come the wiki, and some dev team collaboration 
and email areas, public cvs and www. has moved to his servers this year.

Once our organisation is setup, money would go there and then be distributed 
either for particular projects or for supporting event travel, web services 
etc etc. For the moment we have a need of supporting Eirik  to boost the 
reliability and power of one of our servers and any help there is 
appreciated. Those wishing to wait for the org to get a bank account, thats 
fine.. we await the org's final creation (the forms have been put in).
