Thank you for the insight on this. I will talk with Lars about 
alternative possibilities to contribute to OpenPrinting by means of the 
Google Summer of Code. libjtapi is also not really needed to get the PDF 
workflow working. I think I will make him somehow wrap up on the PDF 
workflow so that we get this one out for sure and on the OpenPrinting 
Summit this year we can tell that we have completed this project 
initiated in Atlanta.

If we also find a student for the Common Printing Dialog we get two of 
the projects opened in Atlanta concluded.

One other thing: Is someone here who would volunteer on mentoring the 
PAPI integration in CUPS? Are there any suggestions who would be most 
suitable for this task?
