For the planned printing support in LSB 3.2


we plan to make available distribution-independent driver packages on 
our servers, and here we will not only cover manufacturer-supplied 
drivers but also the free software printer drivers which volunteer 
programmers have developed. I think as soon as all agreements are made 
or in the beta phase of the development of the LSB printer DDK, I will 
encourage the active free software driver projects (Gutenprint, foo2zjs, 
Epson EPL-"L" series driver, ...) to test the DDK and build such packages.

Then manufacturers can take these as examples for their own driver packages.
