I am Gaurav Guleria, a GSoC student, working with Till Kamppeter to add
and improve Common Print Dialog (CPD) support to existing print dialogs
like GTK and Qt. More about CPD can be read here:
I wanted to ask about your opinions on the implementation and the way we
should proceed with it. I talked with a few people and read this old
article here: https://wiki.qt.io/Qt-5-QtPrint, which suggests the Qt
team prefers CPD support as a plugin rather than a direct integration
into the QPrintDialog.
Just to summarize briefly, implementing CPD support directly in the
print dialog would mean that the Qt team wouldn't have to worry about
any future CUPS changes, or any other print backends for that matter, as
CPD will handle them all instead.
It would be really helpful if you could share your views on this and
give your suggestions.
