Please register for an account on alioth, and I will give you git
commit perms to maintain the brother.desc files. You will also want to
go thru the archives of this mailing list and find prior reports which
we have ignored, and stay subscribed to the list so that you may
continue to keep the file up to date based on user feedback in the
future. You might even consider downloading the brother drivers
(windows or linux) and attempt to extract the list of supported usb
ids. Sound like fun?
