mrdocs is Peter Linnell, who packages not only Scribus but a number of 
other things you may find useful.

If you go to this page:


then click on the Download Directory link, you will see a number of 
distros that he maintains. As you can see, he doesn't have an F11 
category yet, so I presume he'll wait until F11 becomes official (at least).

You might click one of these just to see that this can also be a good 
place to get podofo, uniconvertor, and some other things that you won't 
get from Fedora's repositories yet.
