Wow... I never thought that there is such a page... :-)

Any suggestions what we should include into that page ? Tobias/Jay ?

- the URL should be
- Add links to patches for Solaris 7/8
- Add links to sources and instructions how to build libXp/Xprt binaries
- Add links to Linux x86 Xprt binary + config tar.gz + RPM
- Add comment that Xfree86 CVS and binaries build from it are broken
- Xprint/Xprt FAQ
- Mozilla Xprint module FAQ/troubleshooting
- Add BugZilla query link to all open Xprint module bugs
- Planns/Roadmap/Future of Xprint in Mozilla

How can I modify the page without CVS access ?

Does anyone know how I can browse the CVS _dir_ for the xprint module docs ? does not work...
I'd like to know which files are "there" and what info they contain...

I am sorry, I do not have any Mozilla-specific yet.

I have a FAQ
and some quickguides
I started to hack a couple of new docs for Mozilla's Xprint module (mainly
covering design) but I was servely hit by hordes of emails with questions,
congratulations, suggestions, complains, bug reports (the Xprt binary tarball
(e.g. fixed version of /usr/X11/bin/Xprt) for Linux x86
was downloaded 3722 times since the release of mozilla 1.0 until today); in
parallel I am working on (that's one step to
contribute my Xprt (Xprint server side) fixes back to, I am trying to
give instructions to two other vendors who want to ship their own Xprt servers
for their platforms, some new fixes for Xprt, a TrueType font engine and
TrueType font download (e.g. Type42/Type11) and I am doing some development on
Mozilla's Xprint module (see meta bug 149768 ("Make Xprint not suck in
MachV/NS7"); the dependicies for this bug should be put into release notes for
mozilla's Xprint module... they are all fixed in todays "trunk" and I hopefully
get approval for 1.0.1 that we ship Netscape 7 with a perfectly working Xprint

I wish someone would employ me for this stuff that I could spend more time into
thanks Roland, your FAQs really help :)

Mhhh, thanks! :)
Comments, contributions etc. for the FAQ/docs are welcome...

BTW: You may try tomorrows "trunk" builds (or build from todays CVS) ... the
fontmetrics code has been improved a lot in the last three days (see the
dependicies in bug 149768).
I've done some tests with a 100 DPI iso10646-1 BDF font and the results look
(very[1]) good (arabic, hebrew, thai, japanese, chinese etc.) ... :)

[1]=depends what you expect from a bitmap font... having TrueType iso10646-1
fonts and/or PS Type1 fonts (for specific encodings like hebrew) gives far
better results (however my Linux Xprt does not support TrueType yet)

Requesting permission for creating a new dir under
mozilla-org/html/projects/xprint (Xprint module has grown beyond the "intl"
area) and build a whole new set of docs there, please ?
