Simply put it onto our ideas list:


If it does not fit well to the LSB, create a "General" section, or add 
it to "OpenPrinting", as a part of the PDF printing workflow (it serves 
as well for additional PDF-creating CUPS filters).

Would you mentor it, Mats? If not, anyone in our web 
server/infrastructure team would do it?

Another idea would be, if it turns out that the upstream developers of 
docbook are also participating as mentoring organization, we could pass 
student applications on this subject to them.
