Package: printer-driver-splix
Version: 2.0.0+svn315-5
Severity: wishlist
Usertags: appstream-modalias


The printer-driver-splix 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
printer-driver-splix package, with content similar to this:

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

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

Happy hacking
