Hi Mike,

There is a "Bundesregierung HKS" in 1.5.5svn -- a somewhat limited list
in RGB.


Sorry to hijack this thread but I’m curious to understand the issue: Wouldn’t it be in the best interest of those companies producing spot colors to make sure that Scribus supports them? Or is the cost (effort) of adding new palettes so high that it would be a deterrent for them?
