[yast-devel] drop the YaST printer module

Hello,

first and foremost:
Since a longer time I do no longer have the time to actually
maintain the current YaST printer module which means since
a longer time the current YaST printer module basically rots.

Because in its current form the YaST printer module provides
much more functionality than what 80% of the users need,
it is an overcompliocated bloatware.

Overcompliocated bloatware that is in practice unmaintained
should be dropped.

There are many other printer setup tools available so that
maintaining this functionality additionally in YaST is a
waste of effort. The matching openSUSE feature request is
https://features.opensuse.org/308045
"Switch from YaST to desktop's printer config"


Kind Regards
Johannes Meixner
