Hello Scribus

Any interest among Scribus developers in attending Qt Developer Days in San 
Francisco, November 6-8? http://www.qtdeveloperdays.com/northamerica

There's also a European version in Berlin, October 7-9. 

Some folks from KDE will be at the conference in San Francisco. It's truly for 
Qt developers. Please contact me offlist for more details on the SF version. I 
can help with contacts for the Berlin conference, but I don't really know a 
lot about that one.
