One of my work items of the UDS session is asking CM experts about the
way to get Poppler color-managed. Canonical has no color managers
aboard, unfortunately.

What's on currently at Poppler is that there are patches for color
management available but under the Poppler developers there are no color
managers able to review them. So I ask you and all the other CM experts
to review the patches so that they make it quickly into a Poppler
release. This does not only help for mobile but also to get a more
reliable PostScript printer driver on all form factors.
