You could also have a look at the standard Python documentation (which 
includes a tutorial for complete beginners):
Of course, this has nothing specific to Scribus, so it won't give you the 
scripts you want, but the Python API for Scribus is not terribly complicated 
(in my experience).  Once you can work with Python objects and classes, you 
should be able to write Scribus scripts without too much trouble.
