I don't think either Debian/main or Ubuntu's releases will have podofo
enabled for a while, yet. Podofo is still not in a shape to be included into
Debian and subsequently Ubuntu. So, the ONLY podofo-enabled scribus-ng
packages are in the Scribus Archive a.k.a debian.scribus.net or
debian.tagancha.org repositories where the unofficial podofo packages that our
scribus-ng packages use also reside.
