Updating of text content to 1.3.*

  • Contributors: Gpittman
  • Status: mostly complete, but won't promise I won't tweak it (GP)
  • Comment: Greg has already started to update things so I'm adding him as a contributor. It doesn't exclude other potential contributors, this task is too huge for one person, I guess --Mhanski 08:11, 27 July 2006 (CEST)

Creation of an entirely new sample magazine (Rembrandt)

  • Contributors: C_Schaefer
  • Status: in progress
  • Comment: Front and back cover are almost finished. Lots of things to learn already by re-creating the two pages :) I will now continue with the inside of the cover pages and then create another 4 pages of content. In the end, our Rembrandt mini magazine will have 8 pages/4 resp. 2 sheet. After following all or most of the steps to be described, an average talented user should be able to make prolific use of Scribus.

    • I've some pictures of the scribus crew in Lyon: you can use them for the tutorial if you whish (a.l.e).

Creation of an entirely new sample magazine (about using Scribus)

  • Comment:
    • Since Scribus is not the best tool (in its actual state not even a good tool) to create a tutorial, i don't think it's a good idea to base a tutorial on writing a tutorial. Andreas' idea about a leaflet or a flyer (marketing) is imho better (a.l.e).

Polish version

  • Status: done
  • Comment: the Polish version focuses on the unstable version of Scribus and differs – intentionally, btw – from the English version
