There are already many books that cover Desktop Publishing itself.
Why should volunteers with scarce time do it all over again? It
would be better to include a list of books and online sources
Scribus users have found helpful than to reinvent the wheel.

For DTP Web sites, you could start at http://desktoppub.about.com/ .
There are lots of articles on the basics and user forums where you
can post questions and join in discussions:

Another place populated with friendly experts is
http://www.desktoppublishingforum.com .

There is very little about Scribus at these sites, but plenty of
information we can adapt to Scribus. I would like to see the manual
contributors concentrate on *using Scribus*, not on information I
can find elsewhere.
