Title: Simple Scan (simple-scan)

- openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
+ Package Wishlist: Done
- Requester: Important
+ Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Nelson Marques (ketheriel)
Partner organization:

Easy Scan - Is a very pretty straight away tool for scanning stuff. I
understand we ship xsane by default, though offering both would be
probably a good choice. For me and my hardware, (I need to scan a
couple of documents once in a while) it does do the trick with a few
simple clicks. This is very helpful if you are in a rush (usually if I
scan something is because I am in a rush). It just works.
It is on Factory and openSUSE 11.3, could be default installed on 11.4.
It makes all the sense within a GNOME Desktop oriented installation..

+ Relations:
+ - GNOME:Apps (obs/project: GNOME:Apps)

Business case (Partner benefit): Why we should consider seriously: * It most likely would
meet the requirements of a wider audience; * Because it's already
maintained and packaged for current version and Factory; * Because it's
more user friendly than xsane and offer better integration in GNOME
Desktops; * Because it's a stabilized packaged it's free software; One
remark: this isn't about removing xsane, but instead provide simple-
scan as default for GNOME Desktop.
