favourite killer-app Scribus is competing to be included in
Hackontest, a "24 hour programming competition
between teams of three open source software projects".
A container designed by E-Toy.corporation will house the competition, which takes place at the Google sponsored OpenExpo (the Swiss conference and trade show for Free and Open Source Software). "This room will be equipped with desks, sofas, Internet, pizza etc."
Besides putting up a reward for the best code muscle rolling, Hackontest asks the audience to judge 'soft factors' such as team work and collaboration.
Heaven or hell, on the Hackontest website you can propose or vote for features you would like to be worked on. Of course it would be even more constructive to file requests in the Scribus Bug Tracker but it is a quick and easy way to let people know that Scribus matters. So, log in and vote!
