Till Kamppeter (tkamppeter)

  • Several uploads of CUPS, as pitti is on vacation: Pitti's and my fixes of the Sprint week (especially setting a bigger RIP cache as default so that large-format high-resolution photo printing works), trigger udev event for cold-plugged USB printers, rebuild for new Poppler, updated pdftoopvp filter for new Poppler, suppressed CUPS' own log rotation, as the system already rotates the log files.
  • Uploaded Gutenprint 5.2.4.
  • Checked drivers for Feature Freeze: SpliX, foo2zjs, and HPLIP are up-to-date.
  • Adapted the cpdftocps to the changes in CUPS 1.3.11 and proposed it as a fix for LP: #412709. No amswer of the original poster yet.
  • Answered and triaged printing-related bug reports.
