I also don't mind if others fix obvious bugs in my backends and also
think that a notice to the backend maintainer is better. While I read
the sane-commit mails that show the changes, I've already overlooked
some of them.

If many backends are changed, a mail to sane-devel is also ok in my

Also, if a backend is developed in an external CVS the maintainer may
overlook the previous change and just upload his newest version. So
the fix gets lost.
