The m2300w driver is a driver for the Konica Minolta magicolor 2300W and
2400W color laser printers.
The driver is basically intended for being used in conjunction with

GNUlpr, PPR, PDQ, CPS, and direct printing.

* Slightly rewrite descriptions.
* Bump debhelper compat to 9 for auto- buildflags.

[ Till Kamppeter ]
* Update the ppd-updater driver regexp.
* Added "Build-Conflicts: foomatic-db-compressed-ppds" to assure that the
Foomatic XML database is present during package build and not only the
compressed archive of the Foomatic PPD files.
* debian/patches/20_use_ghostscript_with_nointerpolate.dpatch: Added
"-dNOINTERPOLATE" to the Ghostscript command line. This makes the page
rendering by Ghostscript significantly faster.
* Add PPD files for the KONICA MINOLTA versions of the magicolor
2300W/2400W. (LP: #250583)

* Use the new dh_pyppd.
- Drop the explicit pyppd call.
- Install the PPDs before dh_pyppd.
- Version Build-Depends on pyppd.
- Drop the explicit depends due to pyppd usage.
* Drop the PPD-updater postinst and use CUPS' trigger instead.
