avahi: Support local-only services via the loopback interface



Package: avahi
Version: 0.7-4
Severity: wishlist



Please take a look at

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/avahi/+bug/1736757

https://github.com/tillkamppeter/ippusbxd

and

https://lists.debian.org/debian-printing/2018/09/msg00129.html

Would it be possible to apply this patch to the Debian version of
avahi?

Exposing the printer on localhost fits the IPP-over-USB standard
and would also enhance the printing system to take advantage of a
recent change in CUPS which is not possible without the facility.
