I am giving my long awaited presentation on Scribus to our local LUG
tomorrow evening. It would be cool if I had 1.3.9, but it's still not
in the Fedora updates repo. Apparently it is in updates-testing, and I
tried to enable that repo temporarily just so I could grab it easily,
but yum is a mysterious woman. I followed the man page to the letter,
but it does not work - "yum --enablerepo=updates-testing." And instead
of telling me specifically what I did wrong it just dumps the contents
of --help. I long for my Ubuntu days when I could use Synaptic.

Oh well. My audience knows little of Scribus. They probably won't even
notice I'm still using 1.3.8.
