Hi everyone,

The new SANE homepage is now online at http://www.sane-project.org
(=http://sane.alioth.debian.org). It was mostly copied from the old
page at http://www.mostang.com/sane/. Please have a look at the new
page and tell me about wrong/missing information, bad wording and
other bugs. Or better yet, fix it. Every project member has write
access to the html pages (CVS module "html").

Changes in comparison to mostang.com:

- Made all pages (hopefully) HTML-standard-compliant
- Added contact link, automatically generated date and author on every page
- new mailing lists: sane-announce, sane-commit
- more homogeneous design, some pages have a better structure now (hopefully) 
- new pages about
  * contributing to SANE
  * reporting bugs  
  * manufacturer information
  * SANE license situation
  * CVS access  
- Automatically generated HTML list of scanners


* add sanei documentation (currently on sanei.meier-geinitz.de)
  If possible, generate it automatically with doxygen
* add a way to generate daily snapshots of the CVS (that's done by
  Jochen Eisinger already but it would be easier to do it on alioth
* merge mailman sane-devel archives (I'm waiting for root to do that)
* the sane-project.org domain should point to sane.alioth.debian.org
  by DNS. Currently it's just a redirect which is ugly. But gforge
  doesn't seem to support vhost currently.
* Lots of links in the SANE distribution must be updated.

Happy testing,
