Printer testing and internationalization issues ARE currently off topic
based on the current printer summit agenda.  

The proposal from Beijing Software Test is that we update the agenda to
include some time to hear about BSTQC's printer testing results and to
communicate the problems that they encountered in compatibility testing.
I think it would be to our advantage to add this topic to the agenda and
to give BSTQC a chance to share compatibility testing issues on the list
prior to the summit.

If I don't hear any objections, I'll add these topics to the summit
