I have looked into it, too, and when doing investigations for the implementation 
of driverless IPP scanning I saw it in PWG's ippsample.

Also, all the OpenPrinting projects are on GitHub now, so I think we should 
start to use it.

Is it possible o create an organization account under lgtm, or organizations 
within an account, like in GitHub, where users can be added and removed? This 
way LGTM operation would not get hardwired to a single person.
