My hat is off to the Scribus team for having created a manual. Few open
source projects have a manual. Most don't even have PDFs. At least half
don't even have a help file.

I know a number of open source programmers locally. I tell them "when
the code is complete and there are no more bugs, your job is half
done." Usually they stare at me with no comprehension. Some would
create documentation, but hate to write, or can't write at all. To most
it never occurs that documentation is important.
