Package: cups-browsed
Version: 1.20.2-1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

CUPS filters recently changed the way it detects CUPS raw queues [1]
by only relying on TXT fields of DNS-SD, which totally breaks legacy
CUPS (<=1.5.x) setup because those do not have a TXT record. This was
later fixed upstream [2,3] but leaves the current version in a broken
state because upstream has not made any point release for this fix. In
short, legacy CUPS printers are completely ignored by cups-browsed
1.20.2 and this is problematic because it is a common setup in

One possibility is to include [2] as a debian patch (it's very short)
or wait for a cups-filters upstream release 1.20.3.
