  Package name    : upprint
  Version         : 1.5
  Upstream Author : Peter Selinger (selinger@users.sourceforge.net)
  URL             : http://www.mscs.dal.ca/~selinger/upprint/
  License         : GPL / psutils licence
  Programming Lang: C

The upprint package contains tools for better formatting
of print jobs. Unlike print systems such as CUPS,
which delegate all formatting to the print server, the
upprint tools are designed to work on the user side, and
therefore under the user's control. The package provides
the following tools:

pstops-clip: an extension of Angus J. C. Duggan's
pstops program for reformatting postscript files. The
extension allows configurable page clipping.

psdim: a small utility to be used in conjunction with
pstops or pstops-clip. It determines the true margins of
a postscript documents and calculates the optimal page
placement for n-up printing. It outputs a format string
suitable for processing by pstops or pstops-clip. In
order to accurately determine the size of the pages in a
postscript document, psdim internally uses the ghostscript
interpreter to render the document. For this reason,
psdim is relatively slow, but much more accurate than
other tools.

lprwrap: a wrapper around the standard "lpr"
program. Lprwrap is a client-side program, which means,
all processing is done under your control before passing
the print job to lpr. Lprwrap can convert common file
formats to postscript. It recognizes special options
for duplex printing and n-up printing. It handles n-up
printing intelligently, with optimal margins based on
the actual document (see above illustration).

I have packaged an initial version and am looking for a sponsor the
preliminary packages are accessible here:

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of upprint back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting upprint, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 507376 ITP: upprint -- tools for better n-up printing
 owner 507376 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <507376@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
-- 
Lucas, for the QA team <debian-qa@lists.debian.org>
