There is a page with about 100 example scripts at http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Category:Scripts
Ale once made a git repository of scripts https://github.com/aoloe/scribus-script-repository with the intention to write an extension manager to browse and install them http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Improve_scripting_and_its_experience_in_Scribus and http://lists.scribus.info/pipermail/scribus/2014-June/050493.html
"Scribus 1.5 -> Help -> Scribus Online Documentation" opens a web browser to http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Help:TOC
Until the extension manager is ready, would it be hard to make an option under the "Scripter" menu item to open a web browser to http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Category:Scripts ?
