Re: cups builds

It seems like we should have OpenSLP 2.0.0

Possibly. Do you have a patch for updating the package? :)

Perhaps a different year for me, and you aleady have lots on your list.

and D-Bus 1.7.0

No. From the homepage:
The current stable branch is D-Bus 1.6.x. This is the recommended version for 
most purposes.
The current development branch is D-Bus 1.7.x, which will lead to a 1.8.x 
stable branch in future.

We usually avoid development versions in pkgsrc.

Yes- the label is "stable" but every day I receive a message from package vulnerabilities about dbus. It would seem that if it was fixed then that would also go back to dbus 1.6 but I am not sure.

One more question, though- if things like D-Bus 1.7 were included in something like /usr/pkgsrc/devel, would it or would it not lead to more secure versions of cups?

I am certainly willing to return to more primitive methods or printing -
but folks not on this or a similar list will not.
