Okay let's tag Pim into this thread - hi Pim!

Following up on an action item from last week the email list is settling on
scribus as a open source desktop publishing solution for production of
information sheets and etc...
I was able to download a mac version of scribus to produce some of the
handouts used in Boston (admittedly I did not have the laptop frame for
screen shots which Anita has since applied).

We would appreciate your review of the and any assistance you have time to
provide in the production of a sribus template:

There are a number of example files in GitHub to use as a starting point:

The main "print" folder holds the generated PDFs, the sub folders hold the
source files.

One feedback I have is on the manual positioning of the small green
triangles; do you think we can find a font representation of the triangle
so we can use it as a bullet point style and avoid the manual positioning
currently required?
