I'm not sure why we would need to host files that are available at 
openprinting.org.  Is it just that you want to lock in a developemnt 

BTW, I have a postscript printer (HP) that also understands PCL.  Is 
there something you would like tested?  I generally run the printer off 
my wife's computer, but I can switch it to my LFS development system for 
testing.  The printer is parallel only and I use a parallel<->usb 
converter cable, but my development system can use either parallel or usb.
