Hi Dan,

As one of the main authors of the Scribus manual, I can tell you that I'm 
absolutely happy with your satisfaction. As it seems, John did a great job, 
which means he deserves every single penny for his work!

I think I'm not alone when I state that many of us would like to meet John 
Culleton in person at the next Libre Graphics Meeting in Brussels!
