=== Discussion ===
[gilir] qpdf is not a GUI to view PDF. qpdfview is probably the one you want
[ianorlin] qpdfview has continued to put out versions I have used it often.
[tsimonq2] I think qpdfview is an excellent choice, but it has not been updated in Debian for a while. I have contacted the maintainer to see if they plan on updating it, otherwise I am happy to maintain it in Debian. I think it's a good choice, so I vote keeping with it. Updating the blueprint as such, I'll consider it complete when we have an updated package.
