XSane is included in the repository of all major distributions for more than 15 years.
It has much more features than "Gnome Simple Scan" (powerful preview mode with area selection, color tuning, full dpi range, etc..)

Please don't submit package.yml files, that's not the right way to submit a patch for a package. Even if it was, we don't accept patches for unaccepted packages.

OK, understood. I will wait patiently for an acceptance or refusal ;)
I thought about helping people to build XSane the Solus way, even if the package is yet not available officially.


xsane is an indispensable tool in many fields and it is a standard of free softwares

Thanks for adding if it's possible ;-)
