Hey all!

I am Priydarshi Singh, a sophomore student at the Indian Institute of
Technology, Kanpur. I have been selected for Google Summer of Code 2020 by
Open Printing (under The Linux Foundation). My project
<https://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/projects/#6705486251950080> is to
bring CPDB to Qt developers, in the form of a QtAddon.

The CPDB provides modules to access the different print technologies (CUPS,
Google Cloud Print, and Print to File - as of now). It provides a common
interface for listing available printers, configuration options and
capabilities for each printer, printing jobs, etc. in the form of a DBus
service. Through my project, I intend to build an Add-On for Qt such that
developers may use it to leverage the capabilities of CPDB in the
applications they build using Qt. The project will use cpdb-libs
<https://github.com/OpenPrinting/cpdb-libs> as a dependency. The AddOn will
provide easy usage for both QtWidgets and QtQuick development.

I wish to ask for your views on the project. I would be highly obliged if
you could share your suggestions with me.

Priydarshi Singh
