[sane-devel] Requirements for backend

I've just finished a releasable backend for a kodak i1320, it works
fine and fast... if you don't mind it only scans at 200dpi, duplex,
and 8bit gray.
Which are the needed steps for releasing the code to SANE?
The scanner has a pair of weird things like 2 bulk-out (usb)
endpoints, so it's done using libusb directly; also the "threading"
(it does stuff using procesess, so why it's called thread?) model of
sanei_thread is rachitical, so using pthreads.
Some one of you said someday that the firmware may be copyrighted, and
that is incompatible with SANE, so how do the firmware is distributed?

There are two kinds of light--the glow that illuminates, and the glare
that obscures.
