[scribus] collecting for output

Hello JLuc and all,

yes, that report would tell the developers what to look for.

Depending on system and user, and their umask, the output-folder might
just have drwxr-xr-w or even drwxr--r-- but even respecting that, would
allow the Scribus-output to be used in a team setting workflow.

The way I understand it, any user would normally first create some
(empty) folder of choice in location of choice. And then instruct
Scribus to dump there. And user knows best, so keeping the folder
rights, whatever they are, would be the ideal collecting-for-output
configuration in Scribus.

If this gets filed as a bugreport, I will be available for more
explanation, if this long thread does not do the trick. I just cannot
(yet) compile from source, I tried but our internet just does not have
the Schwuppdizität needed.
