Patrick, Maintenance of cupsddk is open for team contributions, please pass any changes you have to the mailing list email@example.com and we will incorporate them. http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/pkg-hpijs/cupsddk/?op=log We also need cupsddk to fix some release critical bugs in hplip, which is why we have packaged it. We work with Till in the hplip team as well and he has commit access, so it seemed like the next most sensible place. http://lists.debian.org/debian-printing/2008/02/msg00043.html You didn't change the RFP to an ITP and the WNPP is full of people who haven't issued an ITP and say they will but then never do anything. Policy states you should change the WNPP bug to ITP, which you didn't, so there has been no policy violation. But you are free to assist with the package in what ever way you can. All contributions are welcome. cupsddk has been uploaded to NEW twice and updates since, so you could of said anything at any time. There have also been some bug reports, so please forward any comments you have on the copyright file etc... Perhaps in the longer term we could consolidate in a debian printing team, http://lists.debian.org/debian-printing/ but given the amount of work (outstanding BTS) each team has any contributions are welcome.
