Just because it can be accessed through Gimp is not a good reason to
eliminate it from the menus.  The Xsane interface is very useful by
itself.  For example, you can use its Copy mode to send the scanned
result directly to the default system printer without involving Gimp.
Comment 2 Armijn Hemel 2004-06-02 18:13:44 EDT
This is not a bug. The xsane developers removed the .desktop file
(used for the menus) from the xsane package. Even though I disagree
too with their decision, it's not a bug.
Comment 3 P Jones 2004-11-14 15:05:58 EST
I think that regardless of what the xsane developers did it makes
sense for Fedora to have xsane in the applications menu. If one does a
default install of Fedora and KDE (kooka) is not installed, it appears
to the "average user" that Fedora doesn't have scanning capability.

I don't think this is something we really want to diverge from upstream on.
