is there any way to have an idea who is still using tiger (and scribus)?

the reason why in the past i have pushed scribus on tiger is that there 
is no stable version that really works on os x! (and several people seem 
to be using scribus on tiger; as an example in schools)
as you correctly say in your mail, your leaving the tiger users with a 
working fink which won't be updated in the future... but they are left 
with a working fink!
on the scribus side 1.4 will be the first stable scribus for os x!

personally, seeing this struggle and the disapearing support for tiger 
from everywhere, i start to think that it would be good to have the 
latest 1.4RC (with the patch for page switching for mac...) as a last 
release for tiger.

this way, the tiger folks get the best we can deliver now, but since we 
are not releasing a stable version for tiger we won't have to support it 
for the whole lifecycle of 1.4.x.

what do you think about it?

is anybody out there who knows people using scribus on tiger?
