[lsb-discuss] IJS Spec 1.0?

Let me start over with what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to figure out a
test to see if ijs is working across several distros (FC5, SLED10,
Debian etch). The only implementation I have is ghostscript and the only
test I have is the reference ijs server.

So far, I've found that that combination to be broken with the latest
espgs, and not with the latest gnu-ghostscript and afpl-ghostscript.
I've been told that the problem is within the ghostscript tree, and just
hasn't migrated to espgs.

Can anyone help me confirm this?
