Re: Bug#262507: ITP: resmgr -- resource manager library



Hi,

For those of you interested, I've uploaded resmgr 1.0-1 to
experimental (must go through NEW, etc.).

I'll upload a version of sane-backends built with resmgr support to
experimental when sane-backends 1.0.15 will be released (end of next
week, IIRC).

I plan to have SANE built with resmgr support for Etch, and I hope
other applications will support resmgr too. It can make life a lot
easier, and changes to the code are really minimal.

Comments, patches and testers welcome.

Description (from libresmgr1) :
 The resource manager library was designed to ease the use of device
 nodes in desktop setups, where users should be able to access e.g.
 scanners, CD or DVD burners, etc.
 .
 Using a PAM module and a helper daemon, it acts as a proxy between
 the applications and the actual devices, by-passing permissions problems
 easily and elegantly.
 .
 libresmgr can be integrated with hotplug to add and remove devices
 on-the-fly.

JB.
