This has been a topic at fedoraforum.de:
Entering "scribus" in gnome-software does not find Scribus.
Package %changelog claims an appdata file has been added in March already:
* Thu Mar 26 2015 Richard Hughes <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 1.4.4-7 - Add an AppData file for the software center
It is not validated inside the spec file [ https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:AppData ] but apparently would pass:
$ appstream-util validate-relax scribus.appdata.xml
$ appstream-util validate scribus.appdata.xml
• tag-missing : <update_contact> is not present
• tag-missing : <name> is not present
• tag-missing : <summary> is not present
• style-invalid : Not enough <p> tags for a good description
Validation of files failed
Package appstream-data (Build Date : Mon 11 May 2015 01:55:51 PM CEST) does not contain any scribus files yet.
And scribus-1.4.4-7.fc23 failed to build.
In https://github.com/hughsie/createrepo_as_logs/blob/master/s/scribus.log i see:
Failed to load icon: icon /usr/share/pixmaps/scribus.png was too small 44x44
A 44x44 icon on a HiDPI screen renders to 22x22 pixels, which would be stretched up to 64x64 in the software center looking simply awful. Hence the veto.
Is there a higher resolution icon anywhere we can use?
I'm just the reporter here ;-p as I run into users scratching there heads when not finding programs in GNOME Software Center. Such as Sylpheed -> bug 1231978
s/there/their/ --- sorry, need to correct that typo, since it's too embarrassing
I just checked out the latest code from upstream - the largest icon they have is a 44x44 :(

I guess an upstream bug will be required. Unfortunate since it's a great app to have in gnome-software.
Upstream already fixed the upstream bug and added icons to the 1.5.1 tree:
I grabbed the icons and included them in the F22 version, which is 1.4x. Spec patch and icons attached.
Created attachment 1043909 [details]
Spec patch against F22 git branch
Created attachment 1043910 [details]
Scribus icon set. The spec has comment detailing how this was generated.
