It's actually worse than that. Because our online docs that come with
Scribus have a license that Fedora folks don't like, they do not want to
have it in their repository. Of course, they might put it in one of the
rpmfusion repos, but they don't seem to want to do that either.
Consequently, the "current" Scribus in Fedora is 1.4.4
