Let's do an experiment. Thanks to the generosity of Eirik Overby of the
Modirum MDPay/Anduin.net the Scribus Team obtained resources to set up a test
forum. If you are interested in trying out a forum as another means of
interaction within the greater Scribus Community please go to
http://forums.scribus.net, register, and have fun. Some work is still being
done on the forum software to make it more spambot-proof, but other than that
the boards are up, the engine is running, the parking brake is off. Get in and
steer. Please contact the main forum administrative account 'scribus' if you
are willing to moderate as the Scribus Team has no extra time for that, though
several team members have been registered there already to have team presence
in the forums. Hopefully, the initial skeleton of the boards/forums we put in
is a good starting point.

Kind regards,

Alex, toiling away behind the scenes...
