>I have added an attribute CompatibleUPDF to all features on the level of
>That means somebody can declare a complete feature compatible to another
>It is not possible to declare single records of a feature compatible.
>It is open where this attribute should refer to. Until further notice it
>holds references to other device description files (no file extension).
>Purpose of this attribute:
>1. Printer manufacturers may build a number of UPDF descriptions, where
>especially within model families features are indentical. This reference
>may save some testing and QA time.
>2. If a developer connects to an internal database for printer data, this
>reference can be used to avoid duplicating records.
>This settles item 15 until further input on the reference.
>Item 9 is considered more or less settled, as we haven't heard anything
>since Toronto though I asked a number of times. I will keep that open
>until Friday this week.
>That leaves us with item 8 (group licence), where we have some proposal
>from IBM, and item 14 (raster graphic and event handlers).
>these are anyhow issues under current development. So I will not further
>refer to the item list any more. It is considered done (with the exception
>of current development for items 8 and 14).
