as everyone here on the list already knows, Fedora is introducing color 
management. I would like to get it also into Ubuntu, version 11.10 

The development cycle for Oneiric is starting now and on May 9-13 the 
Ubuntu Developer Summit [0] for Oneiric will take place. For that I have 
filed a Blueprint [1] for creating the specification [2] of the Color 
Management implementation in Ubuntu. We also will have a discussion 
session (BoF) on the Summit, with possibility of remote participation.

I want to ask you as color management experts for help to develop the 
specification in order to get a working color management stack into 
Ubuntu. It should make color management as easy as possible, both for 
graphics professionals (easy calibration and color profile applying) and 
for "normal users" who often even do not know about color profiles 
(reasonable defaults). You are also invited to participate in the 
discussion on the UDS and to fill the spec [2] (it is a Wiki). I think 
the best is that we do the implementation similar to Fedora.

To participate, create a Launchpad [3] account and subscribe to 
Blueprint and spec, to get notified about changes and to get write 
access. For remote participation in the UDS session see [4].

Let us get a great color-managed Ubuntu.
