Hi Till,

Thanks for announcing next week's Open Printing SC meeting!
I've been very busy with a live radio show, PWG meetings last
week, and Samsung stuff.

I *have* read the various threads on Color Management and
user-specific presets and so on.

** Embedding Job Tickets in PDF Files **

        CUPS/1.4 Beta Support

- STR#2903 - 3 September 2008

- "%cupsJobTicket:" comments at top of PDF files

- Open printing should consider adopting this as
  an OP Standard

- A possible GSoC 2009 project could be JTAPI
  support for this format

- Also, since it complements base PDF standards
  (ISO PDF/A, PWG PDF/is), perhaps the PWG would
  adopt it as a PWG Candidate Standard (with a PWG
  namespace prefix, rather than CUPS)?


- Ira
