I'm not sure why we would need to host files that are available at
openprinting.org. Is it just that you want to lock in a developemnt
BTW, I have a postscript printer (HP) that also understands PCL. Is
there something you would like tested? I generally run the printer off
my wife's computer, but I can switch it to my LFS development system for
testing. The printer is parallel only and I use a parallel<->usb
converter cable, but my development system can use either parallel or usb.
