This page provides documentation for the usage of Scribus Git repositories for Scribus development.


Scribus Team maintains two code repositories - an internal protected Subversion repository accessible to only experienced core developers that contains a pristine history of Scribus development and a newer Git repository (several of them actually) that enable the Worldwide Scribus Community to easily contribute code to Scribus. We are attempting to follow the successful Git branching development model for the Git repository as explained below.


To obtain access please email your public ssh key to or post it somewhere on the web and email or paste the link into #scribus IRC channel. Read the Set up SSH Keys section to learn about creating an acceptable ssh key. Once we accept your key you will be able to verify your access with a ssh info command. If you have access gitolite will greet you and show the list of repositories accessible to you.

Using Git
