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 

> In the meantime I have a smaller birthday present for the subscribers of 
this list. The British publisher Packt Publishing has just released an 
English version of Cedric Gemy's Scribus Beginner's Guide 
(https://www.packtpub.com/scribus-1-3-5-beginners-guide/book), which  
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.
