Hi Kai,

It's great to know we have someone working on this, it's a shame I didn't know 
earlier when first discussing attending the summit with the OpenPrinting guys, 
it would have been great to have someone there who knows what they are talking 
about :-)

I guess I have a lot of reading to catch up on to understand how this all 
works and hangs together, then hopefully I can make some meaningful comments 
at the summit on what KDE would like to see happen.

Something I think I'll need to understand is why the CPD (or any print dialog) 
would need to have direct support for different colour management systems 
(Oyranos, colord), is there a way to abstract it via a common standard?

Thanks for your work!
