[Scribus] Success story and question.

I have two things:

The first is a success story. We are a small Theatre in Dresden and in Mai 
2006 we switched our workflow for all print stuff to scribus, gimp and 

Stuff produced with Scribus: Playposter (A3 and 500 x 700 mm, CMYK), a monthly 
flyer (Din Lang, 2 sided, CMYK), CD-Cover for Press-CDs and some minor stuff, 
printed on a digital printer. Plus I used it to layout our homepage. 

I don't know if you want to put that to the other success stories.

The second is a question regarding the scribus file format.

We want to make a mass letter for fundraising (ca. 500 recipients) and our 
printshop needs them in one pdf-file. Because we want to use some graphics in 
it and want it to have a better typographie than Openoffice or MS Word could 
produce, I thought about using scribus to create the letter.

But, as far as I understand it, it is not possible to change a text frame 
using a python script within scribus? 

So the next Idea was to write a script that creates a .sla file from snippets. 
Snippets are: the main letter, the address field, which has to change and 
some graphics placed on every page. Can this be done? If yes, how?

Thank you,

Jan Schrewe
