Description Bastien Nocera 2018-05-17 11:16:20 UTC
Those aren't used in either fprintd or BSD's login_fingerprint[1]
fprintd has a version that saves to local file storage. I believe only a couple of functions to help with making the filenames/storage paths unique would be useful, either as code or documentation.

    data: Mark all the fp_dscv_print functions as deprecated
    As this is pretty much copy/pasted in fprintd, and should instead be
    implemented by whatever system actually stores the data, rather than
    in a generic but not quite "fits-all-purpose" way.
