Documenting the Automatic Queue Creation and printing Process for a IPP - Driverless printer in Linux

As a part of this project a tech writer needs to document the entire set of steps on how a driverless print queue gets internally created in Linux. The content will have the details of what goes on at the background and how are the queues automatically created.

The writer also needs to document what exactly goes behind the scenes when an user selects a particular queue and fires a print.

This could be made available both on the OpenPrinting web site and also in files coming with the software packages, like cups-filters.
