Hi everyone,

Now that the genesys backend is included into CVS, I think it's time
for a new release of sane-backends. Please feel free to comment on the

This is the proposed timetable for the release of sane-backends 1.0.16

2005-07-17 Feature freeze (snapshot)
2005-07-31 Code freeze (snapshot)
2005-08-07 Release

Feature freeze means that only bug fixes and documentation updates are
allowed. After code freeze only fixes of grave bugs that render a
backend completely unusable or break compilation and documentation
updates are accepted.

If there are any new backends that should be included in that release
please tell us NOW.

Please everyone have a look at out growing list of bugs and fix as
many bugs as possible:

If the bug report is bogus, please close it with a comment why it's

If you need more information from the author, add a comment. If you
don't get more info and can't reproduce the bug, close it.

Also, you can view only bugs assigned to you to reduce the number of visible
bugs. Having a look at bugs assigned to nobody is also worth a try as
some bugs affect several backends/maintainers. You can also sort by
topic ("Summary").

Happy bug-hunting,
