Congratulations to him, to you, and to all people involved in writing,
documenting, testing and propagating Scribus. You're doing a terrific
job in filling a gap in an important area of the open/libre software

this list. The British publisher Packt Publishing has just released an
English version of Cedric Gemy's Scribus Beginner's Guide
covers Scribus 1.3.5 and hence 1.3.6--1.4+ as well. The book is
available in print and as an eBook.
I've got the ebook version. I do hope you guys get a profit from the
sales somehow. I'd like to think I'm helping you to write Scribus when I
buy stuff like this. Scribus is important to me, and I'd love to help it
become better in other ways than filing a bug report every now and then.
Have you thought of starting a foundation, or any other kind of
organization around the software? Something I could donate a few bucks
to? A PayPal/Flattr/whatever button on the page? I would sleep better if
I knew I could add a tiny little brick to a safe future of the software.
