Where is the Oyranos CUPS patch? All I see is a planning since as
far as I can tell he didn't decide the best way to do it, OTOH we have
something that already works for a bunch of people.

Tell me, who is using besides Cine Paint?
I never said a word on dropping Oyranos development, but I do believe from
a technological point of view it hasn't succeed in all these years. We now
have telepathy. Who will be willing to keep kopete which has far more years
than even Oyranos in favor of a nicer user experience? Or even dolphin why
stop using konqueror file management when a file driven experience has come
in place?

Surely even daltonians would like to see on their computers colors more
close to reality, I don't see why this have to be different if you are daltonian or not.
I don't believe anyone needs to be a color expert to tell which is best, we
are developers we know development if you need to maintain a piece of software
what matters is your development skills. I can't maintain a complex piece
of software few people understand.
