PPD File System Specification

There are several packages in Debian that provide PostScript Printer Descriptions (PPDs) for PostScript and non-PostScript printers. It would be nice if these packages could cooperate more to form a single database of PPDs. This would allow GUI tools like gnome-cups-add, foomatic-gui, ... to provide users a printer model list for adding printers. Therefore I wrote the PPD File System Specification aimed to solve this issue.

The specification is located at http://wiki.debian.org/PpdFileStructureSpecification

Any comments and suggestions to this Specification are welcome.

Kind regards,
Pascal De Vuyst
