I don't say you're wrong. It's more a matter of personal taste. I don't
like CVS snapshot packages, think the upstream author should know when
to release. As a user, I like released software on my system. It's also
a question how the CVS tree is handled between releases. I cannot speak
for scribus, and if you're the Debian maintainer it's your decision.
