Also you can do local update with yum
yum localupdate /path/scribus.x.x.rpm
I'd just as soon not do a local update. Doesn't that mean that Software Update won't check for newer versions?
The Scribus developers sent out an RPM, so it should be just a matter of putting it in the repository. At least, that is my understanding. I recall when 1.3.9 was released it was in updates-testing within a few hours of the announcement from the Scribus team. That's why I was worried that it might have been overlooked, or perhaps the Scribus team messed up and failed to send it out.
Some members of the Scribus community have asked me to test some things in 1.4.0 RC1 on Fedora 14, so not having it is holding up the parade. Otherwise I'm a very patient guy and I know things sometimes take time, especially in the open source world.
