Package Suggestion: Scanner Server
According to the readme, the necessary additional packages are...
The following packages need to be installed: * netpbm - for image conversion * sane-utils - for accessing scanners * tesseract-ocr - for image to text conversion tesseract-ocr-eng - english languague file for tesseract * apache2 - a web server
In addition to the obvious requirement of Apache. Beyond that it's just a couple of files dropped in a directory under Apache's web root and making sure the www-data (or equivalent) is a member of the "scanner" and "lp" groups (or at least those are the necessary groups on Ubuntu Jaunty).
I've found this tool very useful with my home server and I hope Amahi can make use of it, too!
