This is your chance Ale... go ahead and spend months writing docs anew and make a Scribus Docs
package available as a 3rd party add-on.

Given the history with various commercial companies regularly checking out our SVN (CVS at the
time), others offering to sue us, others offering to buy us, others selling Scribus in a boxed
package.. I think we are perfectly in our right to distribute how we like.
