CVS tags: HEAD
Move existing project definitions from projects/gsoc_2011/ to
The goal for this reorganization is to remove any knowledge of the projects
classification from the file hierarchy: the classification goes into tags,
and projects indexes automatically list projects based on such tags.
Also, the current gsoc_2011 name was wrong anyway, because GSoC 2011 has
already concluded and projects would have had to move to a gsoc_2012 directory
Lastly, yes, "projects/project/*" is slightly redundant. But I want to keep
the project lists from the projects "database" clearly separated.
This is as proposed in www@.
title="New LPR/LPD for NetBSD"
[David A. Holland](mailto:dholland@NetBSD.org)
The current lpr/lpd system in NetBSD is ancient, and doesn't support modern printer systems very well. Interested parties would do a from scratch rewrite of a new, modular lpr/lpd system that would support both the old lpd protocol and newer, more modern protocols like IPP, and would be able to handle modern printers easily.
This project is not intrinsically difficult, but will involve a rather large chunk of work to complete.
