If there are no other (more involved in the project than myself) Scribus devs 
coming to Finland for Akademy. I am willing to give a 30 minute talk about 
Scribus, Qt and KDE. I am sure I will be able to gather the facts from the 
team and give a presentation without all the flaming present here. 

I must say all the hostile comments were bit of a surprise. We have been at 
Akademy before and I have never, even during my more active days with the 
project, heard anything like the comments here.

In my opinion the fact that Scribus is not a KDE app relates more to the 
resources Scribus currently has and also to the fact that Qt alone has made it 
possible to give Scribus the wide audience it has today. Stepping in to the 
KDE train now would somehow feel like a step backward. I think this is what 
people at Akademy could be interested to hear: What makes KDE feel like a step
