  • What is Scribus and what can it do?
  • Download Scribus
  • How to get support
  • How to be part of the community
  • Keep it small: Offer all in the visitor's language and keep it up to date

We should limit the landing pages to a small set of easy to translate pages that will create a multi-lingual entry point. Nothing dynamic or frequently changing should go there. They must define the categories, which will get expanded upon in the official/user parts of the wiki. /malex 20:36, 10 December 2010 (UTC)/
