Fixed the rules for recognition of driver types. Now the types
"foomatic-recommended-hpijs", "foomatic-hpijs", and
"foomatic-recommended-postscript" are recognized correctly (LP: #855412).

Suppress notification messages for the new "cups-remote-..." state
reasons of CUPS 1.5.x. As they do not have human-readable text, the
notifications look like errors, which is misleading (LP: #855379).
NOTE: This patch is not intended for upstream. It is only a workaround,
the real patch is updating the message list and improving the wording.

* debian/patches/45_make-connections-list-easily-accessible.patch:
  Make the connections list on the device page of the add-printer wizard
  more easily usable: Really expand it by default and explicitly define its
  default size so that it gets larger (~ 3 visible lines). This actually
  fixes LP: #842092.
* debian/patches/43_allow-test-page-printing-for-remote-cups-queues-via-dnssd.patch:
  As 37_allow-printing-test-page-on-remote-printer-without-ppd.patch, but
  now for remote CUPS queues accessed via DNS-SD. CUPS does not mark these
  queues as remote, therefore the additional patch is needed to recognize
  the queue by its device URI.
* debian/patches/40_improve-handling-of-remote-cups-queues-via-dnssd.patch:
  A CUPS server can also broadcast its queues vis DNS-SD and not via IPP
  (like Mac OS X machines with shared printers do). In this case the queues
  are not made available automatically on the client, but the broadcasted
  queues can be selected in the add-printer wizard under the auto-detected
  network devices. This patch improves the labeling so that the server is
  listed with its name or IP (and not with the description of its first
  queue) and in the "Connection" menu of the server the queues are shown
  with their descriptions (and not all undistinguishable with "Remote CUPS
  printer via DNS-SD").

If a queue pointing to a remote CUPS queue (for example on a server which
does not broadcast) is created, this queue is usually created as a raw
queue so that the driver on the server gets used. Due to the fact that the
queue is raw, system-config-printer does not allow to print a test page
on it and therefore does nothing when clicking on the test page button in
the properties dialog. This patch allows printing a test page on such queues
(no PPD file, remote queue, not a discovered queue). In addition, the user
is also asked whether he wants to print a test page when he creates such
queues, and for queues on which one really cannot print a test page (local
raw queues or discovered remote raw queues) the test page button is not

* debian/patches/35_do-not-label-cups-servers-by-the-first-printer-found.patch:
  If one enters the host name or IP of a CUPS server into the "Find Network
  Printer" field, the server gets labeled with the description of the first
  printer found on the server. This patch makes the server being listed with
  its host name or IP.
* debian/patches/33_probe-printer-remove-debug-code.patch: Removed some
  forgotten debug code.
* debian/patches/30_improve-handling-of-ipp-printer-devices.patch: Improve
  handling of IPP devices found when adding a printer: Make recognition
  whether a found IPP device is a remote CUPS queue actually work, show
  queue name of the IPP device in "Connection" list, make reading out
  device URI of IPP device more reliable.

debian/patches/27_disable-policy-kit-support.patch: Disable the support
for PolicyKit, as it leads to a password prompt dialog when doing any
administrative action, even if the calling user is in the "lpadmin"
group (LP: #807261). Note that this is a temporary solution for
Oneiric only.

* debian/patches/24_expand_connections_list.patch:
  - Expand connections list (LP: #842092)
