foomatic-rip: Replace the universal print filter by an easy-to-maintain CUPS filter

by Anshul Kushwaha for The Linux Foundation

foomatic-rip presently supports a number of printing spooler softwares which are no longer maintained or used. Only CUPS is being used presently. The aim of this project is to scrap the useless support for the obsolete spoolers and optimise foomatic-rip for CUPS, in a simplified and most easily maintainable way.
