Sorry that it's taken me so long to get back to this.
I think the feedback on this has been mostly positive on the Beta
criteria, but I'd like to tweak the phrasing a bit and see if this
comes off more favorable:
I'd like to propose that we add the following criteria to Beta for Fedora 30+:
* Printing must work on at least one printer available to Fedora QA.
"Work" is defined as the output from the device matching a preview
shown on the GNOME print preview display. (Note that differences in
color reproduction are not considered "non-working".)
and this to Final for Fedora 30+:
* Printing must work on at least one printer using each of the
- The built-in print-to-PDF driver
- The generic IPP driver
To clarify, this does not mean that all printers need to function
properly that use the IPP driver, just that at least one does (so we
know that printing as a whole is unbroken). Contrary to the first
proposal, we won't specify any particular hardware makes or models
that must work.
How does that sound to people?
There was broad support for this proposal both on lists and in
meetings, so I am now implementing it with minor tweaks. Thanks
