Package: tpb
Version: 0.6.4-8
Severity: wishlist
Usertags: appstream-modalias


The tpb package is one of the packages in the Debian archive that should
be proposed for installation when a given hardware dongle is inserted or
available.  Thanks to the appstream system, this can now be announced in
a way other tools can use and act on.  I've written the isenkram system
to ask the current user if hardware specific packages should be
installed when a new dongle is installed or already present on a
machine, and isenkram now uses appstream as one source for hardware to
package mappings.

You can read more about this on my blog, 

Instructions on how to create the metadata XML file can be found in
<URL: >.

It would be great if you could add an appstream metainfo file to the
tpb package, with content similar to this:

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

If there are other modalias matches also supposed by the package, please
add those too. :)

Happy hacking
