> Hi everybody,
> This is an unofficial request.
> 1.5.0 release is just around the corner due to
> a decision that the roadmap (on the bugtracker)
> be limited strictly for crash bugs. The idea is
> that the next dev release version occur as soon
> and as stable as possible.
> So the request here is that if you've noticed
> some unstable 1.5.0svn activity that leads to a
> crash, please attempt to examine it better so
> that you can reproduce the steps and report on
> Mantis. If you've been postponing to post a bug

> would be a good time to make the time for it.
> A great example of a succinct and thorough bug

> (props to FirasH, bug reporter extraordinaire).
> Clear step-by-step instructions with an
> attached gdb stack trace (the stack trace is
> optional, though highly preferred because it
> helps facilitate a solution faster).
> Please also check to see if the issue you
> encounter has been reported already before you

> the platform/distro version and Scribus version
> + revision #
> FYI, please compile 1.5svn from HEAD to do the

I have always built 1.5.0 using this svn command
at the beginning:
svn co svn://scribus.net/trunk/Scribus s150

Is this the current path to 1.5.0? If not what
should I use?
