To every rule there is an exception. I have to have PDF X/1-a 
capability. Hence I run Scribus 1.5.0 exclusively.  That means 
downloading the svn package and compiling it. I still use Slackware 
which comes with all the compile stuff as standard. 

The repositories will never hold everything I need.
