Hi list,

Those of you who follow the developments in our experimental branch 1.5svn are 
probably aware that a new import filter for Apple's PICT format has been 
added. The filter will work for bitmap and vector content.

To make sure Scribus can import these files correctly, we would be glad to 
receive as many test files as possible. If you happen to have PICT files 
(e.g. from pre-OS-X versions of MacOS or MacOffice) lying around on your hard 
disk or another storage medium, it would be great if you could create an 
archive and upload it to the bugtracker. If you are not allowed to distribute 
the files, you can set the respective bug report to "private," which means 
that only the developers will be able to get the archive (and see the report 
in the first place). We can also guarantee that the archive will be removed 
once the files have been tested.

Please do not upload any files exported from OpenOffice.org or StarOffice, as 
these have already been tested extensively.

If you are concerned about uploading files because of copyright/licensing 
restrictions, please feel free to contact me directly. I will then tell you 
which developers need them for testing.
