CVS is the current code, something between version 18.104.22.168 and the
forthcoming 22.214.171.124. A CVS snapshot is unreleased code.
The .tar.bz file is the source for version 126.96.36.199.
The .src.rpm file is the same source as above, but packaged so that on
machine with a full development enviroment installed a binary rpm file
can be generated automatically:
rpm --rebuild scribus-188.8.131.52-suse.3.1.src.rpm
would generate scribus-184.108.40.206-suse.3.1.rpm

Generally doesn't work, due to different library locations.

tar zxvf scribus-220.127.116.11.tar.bz2
(install the missing xxxx-devel packages if the script complains about
make install (as root)
