To keep the lprof package available i have placed the lprof files and
other information from Marti old profilers page on my homepage.
Goal is to maintain the package as good as possible but time and/or
knowledge can be a problem. Also if more people are interested in
maintaining this package, let me know.
Then maintenance depends not on a single person and placing it in the
SANE CVS tree (sane-lprof or first sane/experimental/sane-lprof) is a
good option. See als SANE Bugreport 30181.
In this way more people are be able to use the package on more platforms
and there is a tracking system for the patches and changes.
And if you have any remarks/comments/updates on/for this page, please
let me know.
