The Common UNIX Printing System (or CUPS(tm)) is a printing system and
general replacement for lpd and the like.  It supports the Internet
Printing Protocol (IPP), and has its own filtering driver model for
handling various document types.
This package provides the parts of CUPS which are needed for driverless
printing on IPP printers with common data formats.

cups (2.2.7-1ubuntu1) bionic; urgency=medium
* Reverted the upstrem changes for deprecation of raw queues
- This changes the behavior of CUPS (warnings, error_log entries) and
is not a bug fix, so not adequate for Bionic in this stage.
- It breaks the autopkgtest of the CUPS package.

required a restart (Issue #5263. Closes: #861470)
