Description Thorsten Leemhuis 2008-04-24 11:43:47 EDT
Description of problem:
libsane-hpaio IMHO should be installed by default, as we normally install all
the device drivers by default as long as it doesn't do any harm.

Related Discussion:

More information:
From reading Bug 430834 I suppose libsane-hpaio was actually installed by
default in F8 due to that dep that was removed earlier this year to reduce
dependency bloat.

Related issue I noticed while at it: I'm wondering if the split in hplip and
libsane-hpaio is worth the trouble in any case, as hplip tracks in
sane-backends-libs (which again tracks in sane-backends) while libsane-hpaio
itself is quite small:

$ repoquery hplip  --requires | grep -i sane
$ repoquery -qi libsane-hpaio | grep Size
Size        : 58776
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2008-04-25 04:59:56 EDT
I think we can probably make this a lot better by splitting out the pure library
parts (libhpip and libhpmud) of hplip into, say, hplip-libs.

Then we can add libsane-hpaio as a 'default install' package alongside SANE,
still avoiding an explicit dependency in sane-backends.

Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Sub-package split done; keeping open for libsane-hpaio in default package set alongside sane.
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2008-09-29 10:26:34 EDT
Changing component and reassigning.
