That would be swell! Working on CUPS as a framework should give me the foundation needed to do such a thing.

CUPS handles PPDs on it's own, as does GNUstep, there are are overlaps in functionality as well. Too bad CUPS is not available for Windows (or is it?), then we could simply go straight CUPS.

anyhow, I'll keep hacking away at the framework and see what I learn.

My time constraints are really tight so I haven't been able to work on the DirectFB backend in quite a while. I couldn't get enough contiguous spare time to work on it. The result was that I was constantly reviewing my previous work and never accomplishing anything worthwhile.
If anyone else want to tackle this go for it!

Anyhow, I've decided to grapple something a bit easier, something I can work on in small chucks. That thing is support for CUPS.

I'm making a GSCUPS framework. Later will come a GSCUPSGui framework, and finally some apps for managing CUPS will come forth.

Sounds good?

Sure! What about adding CUPS support to NSPrinter as well? Or some way for NSPrinter to use your framework.
