    Good thing they didn't, because LUPPL (or rather, LPPL) is a crass Hokkien expression used by Chinese in some parts of Southeast Asia.

      I think just about every combination of phonemes is a crass expression used by someone somewhere in some other language.

      Just look what happened when Arthur Dent said "I seem to be having this tremendous difficulty with my lifestyle." into a time-space wormhole!

        CUPS upstream is planning to drop support for printers not supporting IPP Everywhere (airprint or various other marketing names). Support for legacy printers will be shuffled off into programs called "printer applications". Seems PAPPL is a such a printer application. See page 18+ in https://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/liaison/openprinting/presentations/cups-plenary-april-19.pdf

          minor hijacking, but how do I connect to an "airprint" printer with CUPS anyway? All the times I tried googling for that I get how to set up a CUPS server to be an airprint server as well.

              I created something awesome, assigned it a "great" license so everyone could "use" it. Apple took it over, and I got money. But Apple's version is closed (of course). Now, I think I can do the exact same thing AGAIN! (profit!)

                Umm, CUPS isn't closed source, yet.

                      My own printer belongs solidly in what I called 'legacy' above, so I don't have any personal experience. Maybe https://wiki.debian.org/CUPSQuickPrintQueues and/or https://wiki.debian.org/CUPSDriverlessPrinting is helpful?
