Hi developers,

Code freeze for sane-backends 1.0.13 is active now. After code freeze
only fixes of grave bugs that render a backend completely unusable or
break compilation and documentation updates are accepted. If in doubt,
please ask sane-devel before comitting.

It's now also time to update the translations and documentation.

Further timetable:
2003-11-22 release

I'll attach the NEWS file.
