retitile 479397 O: gutenprint -- printer drivers for CUPS thanks Hi, I sent out a mail over a year ago looking for a new maintainer for the gutenprint Debian packaging. At the time, I put up an RFA (#479397). I'm now orphaning the package, and will only give it minimal attention. I no longer have an inkjet printer, so I can't do any testing of the packages' functionality. I also have no time to maintain it properly. Anyone who cares about printing on inkjets (Epson, Canon, older HP, Lexmark and others) is ideally placed to maintain gutenprint. The packaging uses git-buildpackage and is all in git on collab-maint: http://git.debian.org/?p=collab-maint/gutenprint.git;a=summary gutenprint has a great upstream, is written mostly in C, and integrates with CUPS, ghostscript, GIMP and foomatic. A general understanding of how CUPS works and good C skills are desirable. I'm happy to continue as a co-maintainer to provide advice to anyone taking this up (since I'm also one of the upstream developers, albeit currently in a limited capacity, I do have a good working knowledge of the internals and infrastructure, having written a good chunk of it). I've just packaged and uploaded the new upstream release (5.2.4), but it has had *no* testing other than that it installs (given that I lack the capability to do proper testing).
