Bug Description

http://hplip.sourceforge.net/plugin.conf shows this:
url = http://www.openprinting.org/download/printdriver/auxfiles/HP/plugins/hplip-3.16.9-plugin.run
size = 2084344
timestamp = 1474620769.87
datetime = Fri, 23 Sep 2016 08:52:49 +0000
checksum = 04cea8212fd6878600ef1179731cc48beb80b67b
num_files = 47
revision = 27389

However, an attempt to download the above fails with a 404 error:
$ wget http://www.openprinting.org/download/printdriver/auxfiles/HP/plugins/hplip-3.16.9-plugin.run
--2016-10-03 23:57:42-- http://www.openprinting.org/download/printdriver/auxfiles/HP/plugins/hplip-3.16.9-plugin.run

Hence it is not possible to use hplip-3.16.9 with a printer that requires the binary plugin.

NOTE: This exact same issue was reported for 3.16.8 as well: bug 1618851. Can you please close the gap in your release process or do I have to report this every time you make a new release?
