Hello Robert and all,
yes, I mean "query". In my first e-mail of this thread I wrote "g-c-m / 
colord should send Gutenprint the information for the driver settings of 
a print job".
Richard answered, that Gutenprint should query colord...

 From my point of view the place for decision making how a job should be 
printed is the print chooser / CPD.
So would it be may be technically more correct, that the print chooser / 
CPD query the CM Framework about the driver setup and pass this to 

Is this technically correct from the g-c-m / colord point of view ?

If yes, which developers for the print chooser / CPD have to be involved 
to make this happen ?

Best regards
