i'm one of the authors.

with my answer i didn't want to force anybody to write a free manual
for scribus.
i was just stating that in my eyes, the advantages for scribus to have
a free manual is much higher than the risk that someone would make
unethical profits by selling an already written free manual.

just my opinion.
