One issue:
(line 4657):
    if ( !(md->revision=='2.70') && (md->model_flags & MD_RII_TWO_BYTES) )

That looks strange. I've removed the quotes around the 2.70 but you
should double-check if that works.

I've committed your backend to CVS now.

What about the microtek2.desc file? Shouldn't at least the version
number (currently 0.95) be increased? Why not just use the build number?

Is the Microtek Colorpage-EP a newly supported scanner? That one
should also show up in our scanner lists. Is it support complete,
good, basic or minimal?

That was my fault. It's fixed now.

By the way: Could you change all references (e.g. on your website) to
mostang.com to www.sane-project.org?
