Note that since Fedora 19, printer sharing and discovery uses mDNS/DNS-SD rather than the CUPS Browsing method that's been the default in older releases.  The '''cups-browsed''' service provides backwards compatibility for CUPS Browsing/BrowsePoll.  One of the changes in Fedora 20 is for cups-browsed to use a more efficient method for BrowsePoll (asking for new/removed printers rather than fetching the entire list each time).

Remember that CUPS unit testing is only one small part of the story: printing is very much in need of '''integration''' testing. Try printing with different applications, using options you don't normally use in the print dialog. Try to see how many different ways you can break it!

{{admon/tip|Checking the Device ID is correctly listed|The hpijs, gutenprint-cups, foomatic-db-ppds and foomatic packages all contain tags that associate them with the Device IDs for the printers they support. If you are not given the opportunity to install one of these packages when your printer is supported by them, it may be that they do not list its Device ID correctly.  You can check this by running <code>/usr/share/system-config-printer/check-device-ids.py</code> as root.}}

If you see something unexpected, even if you are not entirely sure whether it's a bug, please take the time to report it as one.  Without doing that, it may be difficult to follow up and fix.
