Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 238252
include sane module
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:03 EST
Description of problem:
Python Imaging contains a module to access scanners via SANE. This is currently
not built and distributed but only included in the -devel documentation, i.e.
you have to build it yourself if you want to use it. Which is bad if at some
point you want to distribute anything using that module ;-).
It would be good if this module were built and distributed, possibly in a
subpackage. Speaking about subpackages, it would be good if the Tk-depending
modules were separate from the main module as well so that you don't suck in the
whole Tcl/Tk stack if you weant to use the Imaging module, but use another
toolkit for display. Shout if you want a separate bugzilla entry for that ;-).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I'll attach a small patch that fixes an incompatible pointer type warning.
If you wish, I'll work on the necessary spec file changes, just tell me in that

All the issues you mentioned above have been in my mind for some time. :-)
I was just waiting for a nag message to move my ass and do something about it.
So if you don't mind you could work on them and commit the appropriate
changes, I am a bit busy at moment or else I would do them myself. I do not
want to stop working on python-imaging (that I use) but if you are motivated
by these issues I don't want to stop you from implementing them. I hope you
understand the reasons. :-)
Tell me if there any acl changes that I need to do for this to be possible.
committed to CVS:
* Sun Apr 29 2007 Nils Philippsen <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 1.1.6-3
- add sane subpackage, split off tk subpackage (#238252)
- add sane-types patch
- use -b for patches to save original files
- correct groups
Do you want to build or shall I?
Please, go ahead.
One note, in the naming of the tk interface I had thought about using tkinter
instead of just tk, on the other hand there is neither a rule or guideline nor
other similar examples so I trust your choice here. :-)
At least it makes a short name ;-). I've kicked off the builds for FC-6 and
devel with the aforementioned changes.
