The "Download" link on the Scribus frontpage will direct you to a wiki page that also tells you about svn.

I agree. Not everything is obvious, no matter how hard one tries ;)

First of all, I think it's a bit early to test the importer. As Franz mentioned in his submission comment, this is a first step (and he probably has good reasons to leave it disabled by default for the time being). Unlike Qt5 support, the availability of the PUB importer hasn't been announced as ready for testing, yet. It was only mentioned in a.l.e's email to the list (and there's nothing wrong with this).

As to the files you listed, we have a bug tracker (but I'm sure Franz took notice anyway) ;)
