>> a. Thus, there is a great need for a PWG IPP Image format or PWG IPP Raster format; however, I believe that specifying it as a subset of the specific open-source or vendor product is not in line with PWG standards practices. This is not to say that is could not have a normative or informative reference to a specific open-source or vendor product but it should stand on its own with ties to a specific open-source or vendor product. Also, it should not use attribute names or variables that are identified with a specific open-source or vendor product.
>> b. I am aware of other entities that wish to use an established format (i.e. CUPS Raster 2); but if PWG is going to standardize it, it should be PWG entity.
>> 2. The specific open-source or vendor product that is being discussed is CUPS. So, the other concern with a standard that directly references CUPS is that CUPS is licensed by/under Apple and GPL.
>> a. I have not heard or know that Apple has provided a Letter of Assurance on the use by others for the use a subset of CUPS definition. While, I believe that Apple would provide LOA upon request.
>> b. On the other, if any or part of the content PWG is proposing to use from CUPS was/is part of CUPS that was/is under GPL before Apple’s ownership; then there is the question if GPL license applies. Major print vendors may be at risk of either having to release their source code that is associated with CUPS content or even being sued by GPL proponents.
