The avision backend provides the option "adf" ("Enable
Automatic-Document-Feeder"). If this option isn't displayed, maybe the
backend hasn't detected your ADF. Try "scanimage --help". That should
list the ADF option, maybe as "inactive".

But the avision maintainer will know the details :-)

At least since the release of sane-backends 1.0.12 there have been no
changes to the CVS concerning the avision backend. So if you can get
an RPM of 1.0.12 this is current concerning SANE CVS.
