As reported, the server died, and the new one is not yet in action. 
www.scribus.net is redirected to Franz's Scribus page until the new one is 
up. With regards to CVS, as Peter posted yesterday on the mailing list:

Hi all,

As our main www server and CVS have been down, I have prepared a tarball of 
the most recent CVS snapshot. We know several CVS junkies who have been 
missing their fix. ;)


You now need libxml2-devel to compile Scribus. In return, you get Open Office 
Writer and OO Draw import goodness, thanks to Riku Leino (OO Writer importer 
and the importer framework) and Franz (OO Draw importer). Both importers work 
*really* well. E.g. a 600 page OO Writer doc imports fine.   Plus, the usual 
bug fixes and translation updates.

It runs fine and is very stable. I use it daily and trust it for production 

That said all standard disclaimers apply, it could set your hair on fire, give 
you a rash, format your hard drive, install winders and other nastiness. :-) 

As one Redhat devel said when describiing Rawhide, the RH CVS snapshot tree: 
"Rawhide comes with no guarantees, if it breaks you get to keep the pieces."

We have reverted to the older makefiles temporarily. Expect lots of uglyness 
when running configure. It will work, even with automake 1.9.x

I have signed the tarball with my GPG key:

This includes a partial update of the docs and screen shots.

Location: http://www.mrdocs.uklinux.net/scribus-1.2.1cvs.tar.bz2 

GPG signature on the tarball: 

I recommend wget -c http://www.mrdocs.uklinux.net/scribus-1.2.1cvs.tar.bz2


1) tar -xjf ./scribus-1.2.1cvs.tar.bz2 

2) cd ./Scribus

3) the usual $ ./configure [options] && make

4) make install as root

To confirm the authenticity: 

$gpg --verify ./scribus-1.2.1cvs.sig ./scribus-1.2.1cvs.tar.bz2

** You can double check by importing my GPG key into your key ring, to verify 
it. My public key, which is also signed by most of the other devels is on 
most public keyservers. Kgpg makes this trivial.
