You must be kidding. What about the various versions of the HP 7400
that stopped working after 1.0.18, for a start? I've got an
ADF-related bug on the HP 8250 if you'd like, too.

There's an issue tracker on Alioth; if it's not good enough for you,
you're free to set something else up but you'll have to maintain it.

We'll migrate to git immediately after the 1.0.20 release.

If you want SANE to move away from Alioth, fine. But you'll have to
offer something better, and take care of it before, during and long
after the migration.

When the previous hosting failed, Alioth was the better choice we
had. Pretty much the only alternative was SourceDogFuckingSlowForge,
and I don't think you would have liked that better.

There were some problems and failures in the beginning (largely not
Alioth's admins fault, that was bad ia64 hardware we were given), but
Alioth has performed very well for the past several years.
