Hi Steve,

I don't see a problem with CSV for the format, and I think it would be
helpful to go ahead and generate one.

I don't know whether anyone is preparing a script (or if there's an
existing script to work from).  My understanding is that Matto is
working on the template, but that this is is distinct from the script.

I can take a look at the script is no one is available to, but I don't
know about integrating it into Summit.  It seems that the "on demand"
printing at the Front Desk could be as simple as running the script
against an ad-hoc CSV.  (I'm reluctant to sign up for too much last
minute hacking given how much is yet to be printed, etc. in the next 2

Somewhat related - I have the Front Desk printer and am printing to it
fine from CUPS, so that part should be ready to test once we have source
data + template.
