Then you need to ask the maintainer of cups-pdf to push into the next
release (it exists in Tumbleweed), or as indicated add the Printing
repo, or just download the rpm.

If it exists on OBS, then due to packman build power (well lack there
of) unless there is a specific package required that only exists on
packman to add further features (eg un-cripple) then communicate with
the OBS maintainers to get it pushed where you would like it.

So if it links to factory/Tumbleweed on OBS, then it will break on
packman as well... a bit ironic ;)
