[sane-devel] Including the NIASH Backend...

Hello Gerhard,
The "testtool" is only provided to test the niash backend code, outside the
scope of SANE to minimized risk of spoiling the system setup. 
There is no need to include it in the SANE sources. 
It will be still available at our sourceforge homepage (we will keep the
SANE sources and the "sourceforge code" in synch).

Thank you for taking care

Hi Ullrich,

thanks for your tests - I will add the backend code ASAP and 
mark you in the AUTHORS file as current maintainer.
I'll also put a comment to the .desc file, that ony color scans
are supported.
What about this testtool - will it be needed?
If there is still some ongoing development (which hopefully is ;-)
should get write access to the repository to do the necessary
changes on your own...
