Howdy folks,
(If you need context, skip to the Background section below)

is a directory of test .sla files that are fed in to the exporter for
testing purposes during development.

+ We need more .sla files that test normal cases and edge-cases. EPUB
experienced folks, make yourself be known. What are issues that your run in
to all the time that require:
++ manual editing when converting in to epub format
++ mundane tests that a-l-e may think or not think to add

+ Some examples of test cases can be found in the URL above. Here are other
++ Having four frames on an page and making sure that they come out in
order in the epub.
++ Checking that two sections are exported as two xhtml pages

+ How to retain Image captions?
++ https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-plugin-export-epub/issues/1

+ How to distribute the images through multipage text frames
++ https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-plugin-export-epub/issues/2

EPUB exporting is a tremendous issue. If we can get it to play nice in
Scribus, it would be a fantastic leap forward. A nice lively discussion on
#scribus today with a-l-e, who has chosen to spearhead the EPUB exporter,
yielded a need to reiterate a request from the community. *Especially*
folks who have EPUB crafting experience - NOW IS YOU CHANCE to contribute
to this process to make it powerful and expedite it's arrival into Scribus.
Momentum is so valuable in an open source project. Deferring menial task
like this one to the community helps the developer to focus on other
essential issues.

Thanks for your attention and participation.
