I was looking to take a current snap shot of your work and upload again to
Debian, but have noticed you have now introduced cupsddk as both a
dependency and a new package within Ubuntu. As far as I can tell cupsddk
hasn't been introduced to debian and I haven't seen any intentions of it
being packaged. Should we be introducing this package into Debian and
what does it do for hplip?

Yes, you should introduce cupsddk. To do so, simply take my Ubuntu
package. In most cases it simply serves as a PPD generator, also for
HPLIP. Instead of the huge PPD files there is only the small and light
source file, the .drv file on the system. The PPD generator
/usr/lib/cups/drivers/drv generates PPDs on-the-fly then. Also the SpliX
printer driver package for Samsung uses cupsddk. cupsddk also contains
some drivers for HP and Epson printers.
