Bug#90664: How's the foomatic package for Debian going?

Grant Taylor wrote:

It may be instructive to look at the RPM spec [ Till, please send him
your spec, it doesn't seem to be in CVS ].

attached. The file is somewhat older, but it should work. Now there is a huge spec file which also builds GhostScript, GIMP-Print and other things, to make GIMP-Print maintaining easier.

Turn pre-compiling off in the spec file, because with the C accelerator it is a waste of disk space to pre-compile the combo XMLs.

Oh - you get 100 bonus points if you can make the various spoolers in
Debian automagically convert configurations when you switch spoolers.
Foomatic has all that logic now, thanks to Till...

Ses the section about copying printer queues in the USAGE file.

Foomatic is a comprehensive, spooler-independent database of printers,
printer drivers, and driver descriptions. It contains utilities to
generate driver description files and printer queues for CUPS, LPD,
LPRng, and PDQ using the database. There is also the possibility to
read the PJL options out of PJL-capable laser printers and take them
into account at the driver description file generation.

There are spooler-independent command line interfaces to manipulate
queues (foomatic-configure) and to print files/manipulate jobs
(foomatic printjob).

The site http://www.linuxprinting.org/ is based in this database.
