Hello,

I've been a Scribus user for several years, it's a great program. I'm the author of an upcoming book titled  titled Pro Freeware and Open Source Solutions for Business (Apress Publishing). I plan on having a chapter discussing the merits of Scribus. Just to be on the level, I'm seeking permission to use a few screenshots of the interface with some work I created, and a screenshot of the forums page.

I'd like permission to use the screenshots throughout this section of the book, but I'm having trouble finding a way to contact anyone in development.

If anyone can direct me, I'd appreciate it.

Scribus is Open Source, I doubt you would need a permission to use screenshots of the GUI.

Attribution may be needed (I haven't looked at what license Scribus uses), but if the chapter is about Scribus that should most likely be enough. Start by reading the license.
