Hi list,

shouldn't we try to fix these warnings prior to the next release???
Quite a lot of them can be fixed easily by the maintainer and should not 
cause too much work...
As SANE is THE interface for using scanners (okay it's the only one ;-)
we should not only take care about the functionality but also 'bout code 
quality. Often enough there are runtime problems as cause of unregarded 
If you compile a Linux kernel there are some warnings but not as much as 
675... and this is much more code!

Only my 2 cents...
