Try finding that without searching for SVN or Subversion in the wiki :)

Hint: the page has "Installlation" category, not "Development". Unlike
both pages on using Git.

Yeeees, except it need installed Scribus, or knowing that there is
such a document as an HTML file.

Just try looking at this as someone who doesn't follow development in
the 24/7/365 mode. You'll be surprised how many things aren't all that

Thanks. So far I've notices that Scribus attempts to apply fixed
linespacing everywhere, and values go crazy at that (280pt, 380pt --
how about that?), which explains why most of the text is invisible.
