Just an aside, but I noticed that a decision by Apple (to use CUPS
for OS X.2 instead of their own printing system, if I understood it
correctly) seems to have put the name GIMP-Print firmly on the map in
the Macintosh world. Is that true? Does that mean extra work for you,
or just more useful bug reports?
Generally extra work, in the form of "Please support such-and-such a
printer!" feature requests. Also a lot more excitement in general --
speaking for myself, I *never* imagined the project would go
mainstream in this way. There are a few Apple people helping out a
lot with the support, which makes life a lot easier (most of us can
pretty much ignore the Mac-specific stuff).
When the rest of the CUPS support is there, the printer support
requests will hopefully die down a bit, since other drivers will pick
up some of the slack.
