|9:00am - 10:00am|| Meeting before the Meeting
On request of some of the participants the OpenPrinting Meeting starts only at 10:00am. Till Kamppeter (and perhaps also Markus Rex) will already bee in the meeting room from 9:00 am on. If you want to meet Till or Markus before the official meeting, feel free to come already before 10:00am.
|10:00am - 10:15am||Introduction|
|10:15am - 11:30am|| OpenPrinting Summit 2007: Results/Status
Results and outcomes of the Printing Summit held in Montreal in September 2007 (Slides).
Till Kamppeter, OpenPrinting Manager, The Linux Foundation
|11:30pm - 12:30pm||Lunch|
|12:30am - 1:45pm|| Technical Forecast
Objective: Practically, in the Linux community, the term to describe the roadmap or milestone may not be welcomed but the local OP members want to discuss the future (for example, 2008 - 2010) technology map/trend that may already have as the operation plan of the LF OP. If these plan is not available yet, discussion could be based on the Till’s first cut. Nevertheless to say that the forecast may have the wide variety of influences or impacts from other factors such as Portland project, Linux kernel/device drivers/installation tool developments and Printer hardware technology enhancements/changes, etc., but they want to discuss with him in taking the privilege of this opportunity.
Main subjects of the afternoon sessions will be (the slides here will not simply be presented, they are linked here to help for the discussion, some of them have also blanks which we will fill in):
* Printer driver/Printing system validation and device discovery issues (Slides)
* PDF workflow: CUPS filters, driver integration (Slides)
* How should drivers be designed/packaged for smooth Linux integration? Distribution-independent driver packages (Slides)
* OpenPrinting API module coherence (Slides)
* OpenPrinting workgroup future directions (Slides)
* Raising manpower: OP JTAPI, OP Embedded, KDE/GNOME Printing
|1:45pm - 2:00pm||Coffee|
|2:00pm - 4:00pm|| Action Plan
Based on the above discussions and existing activities such as Common UI, Distribution Independent DDK, Validation, PDAPI, etc.
Objective: Members want to discuss what subject/activity could be projected for the short tem (three years) plan in the local WG as well as the prerequisite factors and mile stones of OPWG.
Under the current market trend surrounding the Linux community and its related industry, proposing the short-mid term technical forecast and project plan is more practical since the market and technological direction changes so often.
We, OPWG, should draft the action plan (project plan) in short term.
The OP SC should plan to conduct the P.D.C.A.(Plan, Do, Check, Action) after the approval of the plan at least once an every six months since the market and technical trends and these environment may influence the technical forecast as well as action plan.
|4:00pm - 5:00pm||Discussion, Wrap-up|
The discussion was based on Till's report of the results of the OpenPrinting Summit 2007 in Montreal.
