Sorry, bugs@ml and pkg-bugs@ml members, for the avalanche.

Now mass-changing that to "enhancement", as it should be for package requests.
@ the reporter of this package request
Please check in http://madb.mageia.org/ whether this software did already get packaged, and close this bug report if it did.
Please do also close it if you find a package with the same purpose, that meets your needs.
The only package with epson printer drivers that we have, is epsoneplijs which is for different printers. Apart from that, it is unmaintained upstream https://sourceforge.net/projects/epsonepl/files/
I don't know whether there's a similar project somewhere.
It seems the only way to get a recent Epson printer working, is to download the driver from the Epson website, as said in this section of our MCC manual:
(Version was set to cauldron, because new packages need to be in cauldron first, before they can be backported to stable, but still maintained, versions)
