That's a good start but Nigel Ridley's version doesn't build upon
the original Niyam's version, but our extended and refurbished version
on the Scribus Wiki (this is clearly stated in the introduction to your
OpenOffice document), which has been released under GNU FDL. So there
are some more people to be asked for approval, see this list for details:


Luckily, these are only four people: Gregory Pittman, Christoph Schäfer,
Ludi Maciel and myself. You've got my approval to switching to cc by-sa,
the others are members of this mailing list, so there should be no
problem finding them.

best regards
