BrowseAllow required in cups-browsed.conf for CUPS browsing

Bug #1163764 reported by Jonas Bonn on 2013-04-03

Bug Description

Without the BrowseAllow option being set, the message "browse packaget from IPADDR disallowed" is displayed for every received packet. That this option needs to be set should be documented somewhere and an example of how to set it needs to be provided.

Even better, I think, would be to allow _all_ by default... not totally sure if this is kosher, but it seems a sane default given that DNSSD essentially does this, too.

     - cups-browsed: Made CUPS broadcasting work also without BrowseAllow
       lines in cups-browsed.conf. In this case we accept all remote
       printers (LP: #1163764).
     - README: Updated documentation for cups-browsed.
     - Added more comments and examples to /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf.
     - cups-browsed: Added support for "...:<port>" extensions of
       BrowsePoll addresses. Thanks to Tim Waugh from Red Hat

  [ Till Kamppeter ]
  * Let cups-browsed overtake browsing-related directives from
    /etc/cups/cupsd.conf into /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf. Comment out
    directives which introduce CUPS broadcasting/browsing so that users
    use this deprecated method only if absolutely necessary. Add
    comments to tell the user about how to use the added lines.

  * Use the new fonts-freefont-ttf package name
  * Add simple cups-browsed init script (Closes: #700929)
