Hi all

We currently have hplip packages in Core Updates Testing which need to 
be tested. If you have an HP printer and Mageia 2 then you can help :)

To enable you to update packages from Core Updates Testing you need as 
root to use: edit-urpm-sources.pl --expert

Place a tick in the Updates column next to Core Updates Testing.

You can enable it as per normal update media and should be able to 
update from Core Updates Testing. Please _don't_ install everything you 
find there, just the packages relevant to hplip which you can find 
listed on the update request here:


Once you have updated just those few please, remember to disable Core 
Updates Testing again.

Please check you can still print and scan OK, the HP printing menus are 
OK and that there are no regressions. If you are able check duplexing 
(printing on both sides of the paper) that would be useful too.

Please feedback your findings onto the bug above and include the 
architecture you tested with (i586 or x86_64)

Many thanks from the QA team (who don't have any HP printers!)
