Scribus is available for free, so you are free to include this with your 
magazine. I would tend to suggest including the 1.4.0rc5 version at this 
precise moment (the final 1.4.0 may be out soon). So far there is not a 
mechanism for Scribus to update itself.

This having been said, your readers may derive greater benefit from the 
standard download and install methods. The Windows installer works quite 
well, and several of the Linux distros have Scribus on their 
repositories. Recent MacOS versions have binary versions of Scribus. It 
also seems that we hear more about people who use several computers, not 
necessarily with the same OS, and Scribus can be accommodating in that
