Packagers notes:

* All final release source tarballs are gpg signed to ensure their integrity.
4
You can verify them with:
5
 
6
gpg --verify ./tarball.sig ./tarball.tar.bz2
7
 
3679 mrdocs 8
While we also note md5sums and shasums, gpg --verify is more secure and reliable.

* The font sampler script, requires tkinter to run properly and optionally
11
python-imaging to enable print previews. Please consider adding these as
12
requires, even though configure does not explicitly check for them:
13

* In the past some plug-ins were distributed separately which are now
15
part of the main package. Please consider adding:

	Obsoletes:      scribus-vlna

to ensure these old packages are removed on upgrade.

2565 mrdocs 24
* Currently, the full en documentation is included in the tarball, Please
25
note it is licensed differently from the application source. We may decide to
26
distribute them separately. In any case, a monolithic scribus application
2083 mrdocs 27
plus docs package should also obsolete all prior docs packages.

* Some of the hyphenation dictionaries are under the LGPL or other free
34
licenses, not the GPL. Details for each are in the README_XX.xx.txt for
35
each corresponding language.

* You might notice that configure can check for the cairo libaries, this is not the
38
default, and can be considered experimental. We do not recommend building against cairo
39
for packaging.
