I think I found an explanation : some trouble appeared when gimp3 was introduced in Cauldron... and then pulled out
I will provide a diff for the spec file
and some patches and a python script (from fedora)

Done for Cauldron and also for mga8 in Core/Updates_testing repo!
I will test it from update-testing repo
(I've to uninstall my own packages first)
NB it perhaps won't work for Gimp3 and need to be modified again
So I uninstalled my own packages
I installed the core rpms
I updated from /core/update/testing
As gutenprint-gimp2 was not installed (of course) the update does not bring it...
And you have to go to the CCM and choose to add it.
Nevertheless once installed it works perfectly :
it's shown as "print with gutenprint" in Gimp's menu
It prints perfectly (lots of options : more than with simple "print" menu
This was a clean install of Mageia8 RC (using a backup of my /home/myname)
I think this needs something to add in the erratas
1) When upgrading from Mageia7 the gimp plugin (gutenprint-gimp2.rpm) is certainly uninstalled (obsolete) and you need to add it manually after the upgrade and having updated Mageia8
2) On a fresh install, updating is not enough to make gutenprint-gimp2 reappear
Assigning to QA now,
The gimp 2 plugin was disable during the mageia8 development cycle, so this update simply re-enable this plugin.
Packages in 8/core/updates_testing:
i5-2500, Intel graphics, 64-bit mga8 Plasma install.
Checked Gimp, no gutenprint option. Checked with rpmdrake, gutenprint-gimp2 isn't even available.
Used QA Repo to get the above packages, but gutenprint-gimp2 was not among those updated, so apparently, not a requirement. Checked again with rpmdrake with the local QA repo still active, and gutenprint-gimp2 was there, so I installed it.
Mo installation issues. Ran Gimp again, this time there was a gutenprint option. Configured gutenprint to the closest option available to my HP Deskjet 5650, and printed a photo. Worked great.
Confirming the OK, and validating. Advisory in Comment 7.
Advisory pushed to SVN.

If your HP printer is not in the list provided by gutenprint, you can use the ppd file from the hplip-model-data.rpm
You can find it in /usr/share/ppd/HP/
it's a compressed file (gz) with its entire name : hp-deskjet_5650.ppd.gz
Copy it in your home directory and uncompress it
In Gimp open a picture and choose print with gutenprint
in the gimp plugin create a new printer and choose the ppd file in your directory
You will have all the precise settings for your printer

A wiki page about printing would be great.
And some printers deserve own pages that could be linked from it.
An update for this issue has been pushed to the Mageia Updates repository.
