Great, I am looking forward to meet you on the Summit.

I think also that we should feed your results into linuxprinting.org, to
have linuxprinting.org as one-stop location for all printer
compatibility questions. There are probably a lot of models tested by
you which do not have an entry on linuxprinting.org yet.

Perhaps we can also join this testing activity somehow with Waldo
Bastian's suggestion of printer/distro certification.
