Re: [debian-printing] Packaging of vendor PPD files.

You may want to look at the package hp-ppd for ideas.

Also note the site http://www.linuxprinting.org/
and the quote:
 "The centralized place for PPDs under free licenses exists, and I am the
 maintainer, it is here: http://www.linuxprinting.org/download/PPD/";
from http://www.linuxprinting.org/pipermail/hp-list/2003q4/004289.html

Also please see bug 222218

Vendor provided "real" PPD's for postscript printers are needed by many
packages, not just cups, to support all the features of the postscript
printer. The hp-ppd package links the ppd's into cups but places them in a
sensible "central" location so they are available to other programs too.

Packaging more for debian is a good thing. The maintainer of hp-ppd
package may be able to give you some pointers?
