As part a Google Summer of Code, i wrote another SANE frontend. The

project is to provide libraries to build scan UI.

So i wrote libgnomescan which is the frontend to SANE ; libgnomescanui
that provide widget to scan. The end user apps & plugins bundle is
called "flegita". It currently include flegita (the standalone app) and
flegita-gimp, a gimp plugin. A few features are implemented today. The
project is far from ready for distribution in Gnome releases.

in the past week to make SANE call reliable. Before continuing
development of end user feature (such as preview zoom, fixed area, mass
acquisition, etc.), i want to make use of HAL and DBus to get device
