Our  Scribus Wiki is an highly unofficial,highly dynamic, independent exchange platform which is driven almostentirely by Scribus _users_ (like Christoph, Gregory, or Ludi, myself,and recently yourself too, to name only a few). They've spent hundreds(literally!) of hours of their time shaping it, writing wiki docs, andwhat's perhaps even more important, encouraging other people to takepart, to form a community around it. Now, at last, we've got a ScribusWiki community, and I must say I consider it itself a big achievement,something the Scribus team can be proud of. In the meantime, many ofthese people are quite familiar with using Mediawiki (it was a majorobstacle at the beginning more than 2 years ago), and are capable todevelop it in every direction they desire.

Either sites docs.scribus.net andwiki.scribus.net are differently licenced, have different scopes andpurposes (the  main purpose of the wiki is to get Scribus users to helpeach other with their know how in a more well formed and reusable waythan this mailing list), and are managed by different people.

Please contribute your proposals there, oreven help to implement them.

OK ;-)

For me, it wasn't so clear that there is a clean distinction between 
Wiki and official doc. Thanx for the explanattion.
