Attempting to follow instructions on 
http://docs.scribus.net/index.php?lang=en&page=install1 on "How to 
obtain the Scribus source" for
Here is what I get (Fedora Core 6):

[root at localhost ~]# export CVSROOT=:pserver:anoncvs:@scribus.info:/cvs
[root at localhost ~]# cvs login
Loggin in to :pserver:anoncvs at scribus.info:2401/cvs
cvs -z3 co -r Version1337 Scribus

Then there is a long pause, followed by

cvs [login aborted]: connect to [scribus.info]:2401 failed: 
Connection timed out

I also downloaded the files


1) Why isn't the cvs download working as documented?
2) What is the relation between the source files I would get if cvs 
worked, and the two files listed above?
3) Can the Suse rpm file be used on a Fedora system?
4) How would I do the build process using either the Suse rpm or the 
tar archive?
