Hi everybody,

You are receiving this e-mail today because you kindly showed your
interest on the project aiming at developing a SANE backend for the
Plustek OpticFilm 7200 film & dia scanner.

I somewhat declared myself as a leader on that project (e.g. I
launched the SANE "unsupported devices" page for this scanner with
some info I got from opening the box), and I made a very few steps
onwards the understanding of the different URBs used by this scanner
(I used Papillault's usbsnoop sniffer).

Unfortunately, all along these two years I have been kept busy by many
different other things, and I'm no longer a subscriber to the
sane-devel list. I don't know wether Gerhard has made any progress on
the matter, but I admit I can no longer "lead" this project. I'm
currently in Africa for some more months, and I'll probably have a
look on the points things will have reached around October or November
2007, but I'm very sorry I cannot help until then.

I hope we'll make some progress soon. In attachement I give you the
two scripts for parsing (parseusbsnoop_gl841.awk) and then analysing
(gl842_analyse.pl) the content of a sniff from usbsnoop. In fact the
analyser was initially used for the Canon Lide 60 family
(gl841-based), all credits go to John Dalton.

I'm very sorry for the wasted time, and if anyone of you want to
dedicate some of his spare time to bring this project any further, it
would alleviate the pain of my soul stricken with remorse ;-)
