The SANE anonymous and development servers are down at the moment. To
be exact, they are not down but don't accept any users (ssh or
pserver). Users should download our snapshots instead until that's

The reason is some security problem on Debian servers. Alioth (the
server that hosts our project) itsself is most probably not
compromised, but ssh access has been disabled for security reasons.

So at the momen, in addition to the CVS servers, we can't change our
website and can't login to alioth. The sane-devel mailing list and the
webserver itsself seem to be working.

I'd point to the Debian list archive for more details but that's down
for the same reason at the moment. Some info is here, however:

However, I won't delay the release. I'll use my local tree that's
nearly up-to-date. The only change I don't have in my local CVS tree
is the change of the snapscan.desc file from yesterday. Oliver, please
send me a patch of that Change (snapscan.desc and ChangeLog).

If there are any more chanegs that should go into sane-backends
1.0.13, please send me patches now. I'll make the release Sunday
morning (CET).
