I have created a branch for this:

how do I printout on devices which are uses the rastertopclx or rastertoescpx filters?
As you know I use the rastertopclx filter to printout on largeformatprinters from HP.
or do you move the functionality to rastertohp?
Is the OpenPrinting folks are informed about your steps?
Yes, Open Printing is aware of this - it was a topic at this year's printing summit. As for the filters, they are part of the legacy filters we will be handing over to them.
thanks for the information.
How should we deal with STR #2895: add sample drivers for plotter?
years ago you helped me to create a ppd for HP-Plotters and now?
Regarding STR #2895, I'm closing it as a dupe of this bug - feel free to track where this gets put in open printing land so you can send your driver info file there...
please send me a link to track changes at openprinting ...
I could not found anything :-(
in the last week you checked in a lot of fundamental changes into cups 1.6.
Is there any article about the way to 1.6 and the building blocks printing of this future available.
Do not talk about the slides from "OpenPrinting Summit San Francisco 2011", I looked inside of them for month. They are very interesting.
But the people and I am needs a summary of the slides.
Till Kamppeter is the person that will be able to help you on tracking things for Open Printing.
As for an article, I am working on one to show the roadmap ahead.
