Description

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..

User 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.
