Even though the UPDF spec is coming along - the work is not as focused
as it could be. I believe there are a couple of reasons for this. One being ther
sheer size of the task. We did an excellent job dividing the job into sections -
UI, Localization, etc - but I haven't done a very good job keeping the work
focused on a specific area.
Another issue has been the usefulness of the project itself. Is
UPDF really needed when IPP can retrieve some of the info from
the printer? Can IPP and UPDF complement each other or is there maybe
too much overlap?
There also has been some thought about steering UPDF towards
a Linux (and other Unix flavors) printing solution and not really a "Universal"
solution. What do
people think about that?
Chuck sent out the DTD vs Schema link. This is something to look at. Als
