 A user need not be a purist to object if their favorite registry refuses to
carry the latest stable version of Scribus. I don't have that problem but
others will.

If one wishes a greater span of CMYK colors the Galaxy Gauge Color
Guide displays over a 1,000 printed swatches and their CMYK
notation. If I wanted to find a particular color not found on the
Scribus Open Office Palette I would use the Galaxy product. IMO
the Givelife effort has no practical use. And if it screws up
distribution of Scribus in the Debian etc. world then it should
be omitted.
