Changes in pdftopdf and pdftoopvp (Otani)
Changes are related to Page Size.  If there is no option for fitplot,
page size is ignored and the size setting in PDF is used.  It makes
possible to print out with default page size when printing via lpr.
Also, it enables multiple page size printing within single document.

There also other bug fixes.

Otani-san asked Ubuntu to incorporate pdftoopvp to next release (9.10).
 Gimp on Ubuntu 9.04 generates PDF as printing data using Cairo library.

Steering Committee Telephone Meeting
Here is the proposal from member in Japan:

 - Telephone meeting for US/EU/Japan will be held quarterly.
 - Other than above, unscheduled meeting is possible, for example,
   preparation for printing summit.
 - Technical communication can be made via mailing list.
 - Activities in Japan will be reported as a form of meeting minutes
